In this blog, I am providing steps to report ‘Online or Digital Media’ PDUs under Education category. Online and Digital Media is the most interesting category and includes self-paced learnings through pre-recorded webinars, podcasts, and digital media.
Before reporting these PDUs, you need to map each Online and Digital media PDUs in either one of the following three categories of Talent Triangle:
Following guidelines can help you to map your learnings in above categories:
1. If your learnings pertain to skills that help project achieve its business goals. You can report them against leadership category. For more details, you can refer my blog on “Earning Leadership PDUs”
2. If you are watching videos for the strategic business analysis, categorize them in ‘Strategic’ PDUs. For more details, kindly visit “Earning Strategic PDUs”
3. If video or webinar content pertains to the technical areas of your PMI certificate, categorized them in ‘Technical’ PDUs. You can refer my blog on “Earning Technical PDUs”
Note: You can earn all of your PDUs using ‘Online and Digital category 🙂 . If you like watching pre-recorded videos or participating in webinars, this could be your favorite way to maintain your certificate.
Now come to the step to report Online and Digital Media PDUs:
Login at pmi.org using your user id and password.
Go to your dashboard and then select Report PDUs as shown below:
Now ‘Report PDUs’ screen will appear. Here you need to select “Online or Digital Media” under Education category as shown below:
Fill details of Provider, Title, Date Started and Date Completed. Provider and Title details will come from the source of your digital or online content. If you are watching any video from iZenBridge YouTube channel, in this case provider will be “iZenBridge” and the Title will be the name of video.
The provider of your online or digital media can be any PMI REP (Registered Education Provider), or it may be any third-party.
Description and URL of online media are optional details.
When you scroll in the same screen, you are also required to fill the number of PDUs for the relevant category of Talent Triangle. You are required to divide the PDUs among Technical, Leadership, and Strategic PDUs. And the division will depend on the content of pre-recorded videos or webinars.
You can count 1 PDU for each hour of watching online or digital content. You may find that online or digital content belongs to all three categories, or it may fit only one/ two categories.
