The student can be confident that these hours are pre-approved and will automatically be accepted toward fulfilling the contact hour requirement. Students who wish to claim contact hours should select “GAC Accredited Programs” as the education provider when completing the PMI credential application.
  • GAC accredited programs are now able to issue Professional Development Units (PDUs) to students who complete any individual registered project management course within their accredited degree program. The PMI credential holder can be confident that these PDUs are pre-approved, and will automatically be accepted toward fulfilling the PMI continuing certification requirement. Students should claim these PDUs under “Category A – Courses Offered by PMI’s Registered Education Programs (R.E.P.s), GAC Accredited Degree Programs, chapters and communities.”
