PMI® Re-Certification

Deepen your skills as a project manager and maintain your status as a PMP®, CAPM® or ACP®!

To maintain your certificate of competence, you must demonstrate Professional Development Units (PDUs) through project management-related continuing education within a specified period of time.

These PDUs can be earned through various professional development activities in the following two areas:

  • Education - learning opportunities that enable you to enhance and improve your technical, leadership or strategic and business management skills.
  • Giving back to the Profession - Activities that enable you to share and use your knowledge and skills to contribute to building the profession.


There are different CCR* requirements for each PMI certification, which are described below:

To help project managers navigate the changing world of work, the three areas of the PMI Talent Triangle have been updated:

→ Ways of Working
(ex. Technical Project Management) ⇒ Project management methods

→ Power Skills (ex. Leadership) ⇒ Leadership skills of project managers

→ Business Acumen (ex. Strategic and Business Management) ⇒ General understanding of management





You can find more information about the PMI Talent Triangle here.
