Category C: Self directed Learning provides an easy way to earn PDUs for free.

Learning may include informal activities such as:
• reading articles, books, or instructional manuals;
• watching videos
• having formal discussions with colleagues, coworkers, clients or consultants;
• being coached or mentored by a colleague, coworker or consultant

1 PDU is awarded for every 1 hour spent in a self-directed learning activity listed in this category.

You just need to make sure that you document each of these activities completed and claimed for PDUs. You might be asked to provide the documentary evidence for the PDUs you are claiming.

Write down name of activity, hours spent, PDUs claimed, the reference or the details of the activity completed (URL, book/course name), in a word doc or an excel sheet format and send by mail to PMI in case you are asked to provide these details.
