Dear Scrum Team,

I came across a prior course offering by Ken Schwaber that mentioned it was PDU eligible.

Can someone offer guidance on whether the Scrum.Org courses are PDU eligible? I think not, but would like to confirm.

Thank you.

Hi Nitin,

I believe students have been able to claim PDUs after attending a two-day course. I'd recommend asking your trainer for a letter of reference to indicate that you've attended a course.

Also, you can probably use the information provided in Category B, Continuing Education, for guidance:…

Hi Nitin,

when studends ask me regarding PDU's I provide them a confirmation of participation in a course with the topics of the Agenda and a schedule (usually 14 h).
This seems to be enaugh for PMI to accept the PDU's.
I never ever had any complain.
I don't know if this fits just for here in Germany but as I said it works here.

Can I claim pdu's if I self-studied to obtain certs? If so, how do I go about  claiming them?

@James, you would need to ask PMI that as they are the ones who create the rules, not us.


Thank you

Thanks for this case. I also have the same solution!
