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
Accept Agreement
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.

Dear Friend, Thanks a lot for the suggestion. It was difficult to search in PMI.org and when I searched , landed in this website. With your logic, I am going to save hard earned money and will be well utilised towards earning PDUs for next cycle. Regards Harish
The membership will get renewed from the date when it expired. So, even if you renew the membership in Oct 2014, it will be considered effective May 2014 for 3 year period.
