Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) Changes:

Have you heard?  Effective December 1, 2015, the CCR program will be aligned with the employer-identified skills depicted in the PMI Talent Triangle (Technical Project Management, Strategic and Business Management, Leadership) to ensure you are equipped to remain relevant in a continually changing business environment. The changes affect how PDUs are earned and tracked against a certification.  Check out the table below to understand how it impacts you depending on your certificate expiration date.  For more information about the PMI Talent Triangle and CCR updates, visit PMI’s website https://www.pmi.org/certification/ccr-updates-pra.aspx .
