This article describes the steps for claiming professional development units (PDUs) for The PM PrepCast™ for PDUs. After printing your certificate, request credits on the CCRS website.
The Project Management Institute (PMI) has retired the Register Education Provider (R.E.P.) Program at the end of 2020 (in all locations except for China). Our courses were automatically removed from the PMI® Continuing Certification Requirements System (CCRS) sometime later. Note this change is only a technical formality, and all our courses are still valid for professional development units (PDUs)! The only difference is that claiming them takes a few more steps.

This is all the information that you need to provide in your claim. You do not need to include a copy of your certificate. The copy will only be required if your claim is selected for audit.
1) If you start typing in a response on the CCRS claim form, the system may provide suggestions in a dropdown list.
- To avoid errors in your claim submission, do NOT select any suggested options from a dropdown list.
- Instead, cut and paste the text from What To Enter on the table above onto the corresponding CCRS online form field. For example:
- DON'T: select OSP International LLC from a dropdown list in the CCRS
- DO: cut & paste "OSP International LLC" onto the Provider field on the CCRS.
2) In case you are audited, it is good practice to have a copy of your certificate.
