All About PDUs VS SEUs of Scrum Alliance Courses

PDUs
PDUs are Professional Development Units, necessary for maintaining the Project Management Institute (PMI)-certified credentials. They are a part of PMI’s Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) program. One PDU is worth one hour of project management training, though there are some exceptions to this rule. PMPs and other PMI credential holders can claim PDUs by visiting PMI’s web site. After logging into the site, in the left-hand sidebar, there will be an option to claim PDUs for valid credential holders.

SEUs
A Scrum Education Unit® (SEU®) is a credit earned by completing an educational training or learning opportunity that meets a defined set of learning objectives. when determining whether SEUs are warranted, we take into consideration factors such as content, quality, and accuracy of the material. SEUs follow a 1:1 ratio, where one hour of participation or preparation is equal to one SEU.
