- Renewal Requirement: Every 3 years, PMP® professionals are obligated to renew their certification to preserve its active status.
- Earning PDUs: To meet the renewal criteria, certification holders must earn and report 60 Professional Development Units (PDUs).
- Renewal Fee: Alongside reporting PDUs, you need to pay a specific renewal fee to PMI.
- Badge Restrictions: During suspension, promoting yourself as a PMP® certified professional or using the PMP® badge is prohibited.
- PDU Earnings: PDUs earned during the suspension period can still be reported and will count towards your renewal.
- Retake the PMP® Exam: If you wish to regain your PMP® status, you’ll need to register, apply, and pass the PMP® exam once more.
