Journey of PMP Certification
Welcome to my journal of PMP certification. In this blog I write about Project Management & PMI PMP certification.
I started this blog in early 2009 when I was preparing for my PMI PMP certification. I have posted here the links to resources I used for my PMP certifications.
I keep posting to this blog about continuing PMP certification resources such as earning PDUs as well as new useful resources for project managers.

PMP certification renewal
It’s about three years; time goes by so fast. Three years back I had earned PMI PMP certification. Recently I renewed my PMP certification.
Every PMP person has renew PMP certification every three years & we have to earn 60 PDUs every three years as a part of Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) program.
PMI PMP renewal fee for non PMI members is USD 150.00
For Members it is USD 60.00. PMI membership fee is USD 139 ( Renew ). So if you purchase PMI membership you have to pay ( 60 + 139 = USD 199 ) for renewal. This is I feel a good deal with only additional USD 49 you get access to benefits of membership
I earned most of my PDUs from PDUCast from Cornelius Fichtner & SimpliLearn’s ITIL course which gives 30 PDUs . I also recorded PDUs from project management practice I have been doing & self learning.
To renew PMP certificate
First we have to report all PDUs in three years . Once we complete 60 PDUs we get an email from PMI about your readiness for renewal. Then we have to visit PMI site & goto myPMI >> my certification info. There we find PMP renewal options
Following steps are needed to make payment
Verify Billing Address
Company code for renewal , Voucher for renewal ( If we have company voucher or company code you can enter here )
Select Method of Payment & make a payment.
That’s all . You should get a new certificate & kit in mail.
