Earning the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification from Project Management Institute (PMI) may be the end of one journey but it is also the start of another. The certification is not valid for life: to truly be a PMP, you need to keep up with the fast changing world of project management, work on improving your skills, engage with the PM community - and by completing all these tasks, you earn Professional Development Units (PDUs). These units are very important because they allow you to renew your certification - which you need to do that every 3 years.
In this series of articles, I am going to give you my tips and tricks on how to earn the PDUs you need - and it will be up to you to decide which of these methods work best for you.
Today, I would like to turn your attention to 3 online courses that PMI.org released for free to help project managers in the COVID-19 world to manage the shift to online-exclusive way of working. These courses need to be "purchased", however, the price is $0. By completing these courses, you can earn up to 9,5 PDUs.
Business Continuity course will help you and your organization adapt (in real-time) to ensure remote teams are engaged, virtual collaboration is productive, and necessary compliance standards are met during this challenging time due to COVID-19.
