    Hi John, thanks for the links.

     

    Is there a means for sorting/filtering courses by PMI PDU credits available?  We have a number of project managers working to obtain or maintain there PMI certifications - courses with PDU credits would help them out, and may help us generate better participation/use of CA PPM from these project managers.

     

    Thanks,

     

    Dale

    Thank you, Kevin - yes, this is helpful.

     

    I've tried looking/filtering course list by "PDU" - if there's a way to do so, its not obvious to me.  If I'm not missing something, could be a useful addition to help those seek PDUs find those that qualify.  I'd like to supply a link to project managers, and have them be able to search/find such courses on their own and not have to ask for listings when course offerings change.

     

    For now, the list you provided will get me started - thanks, again!  I'll forward this list with a link to the course website.

    Thanks for the info Kevin

     

    Quick question on the below -

     

    "Upon conpletion of CA Clarity PPM 14.2: Differences 200 (33CLR23480), you may submit this as a Category B PDU.  Value is 0.5."

     

    I just completed this course. When I apply for the PDU, what is the URL link that I need to put in ?

    Thanks for asking.

     

    Since it's an optional field, you can input www.ca.com, or you can leave blank.
