Attending PMI local community events, taking courses and working or colunteering is an excellent way for credential holders to maintain their PMI certifications. The process to follow is determined by the category under the Continuing Certification Requirements System (CCRS). The steps to follow for the most common claim catgeories are outlined below along with a link to the official Project Management Institute CCRS Handbooks & Guides.

Remember to keep a paper record of the PDUs you claim in the event of a PMI audit.

Please note that, under the Talent Triangle, you have restrictions on how many PDUs you can or must claim in each area.
For PMPs, in each cycle, you must earn a minimum of 35 PDUs in Eductation and can only claim a maximum of 25 PDUs in all categories under "Giving Back".
Additionally, PMPs must earn a minimum of 8 PDUs in each of the Triangle requirements (Technical, Leadership, Strategic) plus 11 more between any combination of the Triangle requirements.
More details on the requirements, including the requirements for other certifications can be found in the CCR Handbook.

PMI Mass Bay holds monthly dinner meetings from September through June, typically on the third Thursday of each month.  The meetings are held in venues that can provide a first-class professional setting with full meal service and audio-visual support.  Meetings are held in different geographic areas to garner widespread participation of our chapter members.  In recent months our meetings have been held in Burlington, Newton, Wellesley, Cambridge, Boston, Woburn, Wakefield, Lexington, Dedham and Waltham.

Our chapter invites both our members and those interested in the project management profession to attend presentations from leading authorities on project management.

On a periodic basis, the Chapter offers a mini-course on the same night as the chapter meetings.  These popular one-hour sessions, available for a moderate additional fee, are held prior to the dinner meeting and enable participants to obtain an additional PDU as well as learn about another topic of interest.   Seats are limited and typically sell out, so early registration is recommended.
