Based on the amount of time you will spend in self-directed study of negotiation – we estimate four to six hours of reading, which converts to 4 - 6 PDUs for qualified PMPs who are under the 30 PDU limit for their current three year certification cycle. Please note that these PDUs will need to be reported as Category C: Self-Directed Learning. For full details on PDU reporting refer to the PMP Handbook.
