我的PMI-ACP 續證之路

繼上集 “我的PMI-ACP之路” ,三年後的下集

考左PMI-ACP兩年幾,有樣continuing certification requirement (CCR),每三年要符合30個Professional Development Unit(PDU) 同俾錢(US$150非會員)續證。

值唔值得就見人見智,個人來說沒有因為cert得到工作上好處,反而在運用和體驗對agile有啟發。正因為當初咁辛苦考,所以繼續續會,延長證書的有效性。

續牌條件

只要儲夠總共30個PDU (包含Technical, Leadership, Strategic 至少各4個PDU)
P.S 1 PDU = 1 Hour

除左以上3種Education類,仲有giving back類別(做義工/Practitioner),相對較難或我唔建議,你自己研究過就明白我所講。

有好多方法賺PDU,主要上course/training和digital media,當然好多就要錢,我就唔會突登花錢去再上training,所以主要睇online/digital media (有部分免費)

詳細的方式,自己去望 https://ccrs.pmi.org/info/earnpdus

個人分享

開始正式要計劃下點樣賺PDU,特別武漢肺炎期間多左時間留係屋企,所以要自我增值,去到今日(8/4)仲有十幾個鐘,慢慢長路,慢慢睇片。

1. PM Podcast (Free)

大部分都係0.5hours,聽完個podcast重跟住個guide去填表格

i) Find the desired PDU category
https://www.project-management-podcast.com/podcast-episodes/episode-spreadsheet

ii) Go to podcast list and listen
https://www.project-management-podcast.com/podcast-episodes

iii) Go to https://ccrs.pmi.org/ and fill the form
https://www.project-management-podcast.com/pdu/how-to-claim-pm-podcast-pdus-in-the-pmi-ccrs

iv) After submitted and wait for approved
我暫時申請左幾次,以下是我的結果
0.5 hour -> 兩次即時approved,一次等左6個鐘後approved

2. Project management (Free)

睇片學習,簡簡單單賺PDU


i) Login via PMI
(一定要用你本身登入CCR個帳戶, basic membership is free)

ii) Choose On demand Webinars

iii) Filter by “Free” and ensure PDU needed

iv) Watch the whole episode
(You must watch the whole videos, otherwise it won’t show or just mentioned 33% in PDUs award)

v) Go to Accounts page (a section called PDU awards) to check

vi) Wait for 7-10 days processing time
1hr video -> 過左9日後自動submit然後即時approved
1hr video -> 過左1日後自動submit然後即時approved
暫時20個鐘video全部Approved


3. 自修

為左考ITIL v3 foundation,報左udemy ITIL foundation video course

i) Finish the course

ii) Fill the form
Activity: course name
Provider: udemy
Description: Basically simple description about the course

報左8.5 hours => 即時approved

總結

本身續牌已經要US$150 (非會員),所以唔太值得額外花好多錢去報course。而我純粹唔好咁單調而報考左ITIL foundation先上video course。

網絡上有好多免費的PDU方法,但研究左一排最普遍係PM podcast同應該係官方唔洗填表自動申報的,你話學唔學到野,係有ge,但同樣有d片好悶,你懂的。

我都有擔心會唔會被audit,但暫時都冇,只要一通過approved就唔洗擔心續牌的時候被人audit。

最後大家加油,乖乖睇片,唔好偷懶,仲有十幾個鐘,到時完成再update大家。




過左依個復活節終於完成晒節所有30個PDU,唔洗擔心下年續的時候唔夠數。
最後一步係俾錢renew,早renew好似冇分別,有效期都係原本個到期加3年,所以留返下年先。

下一篇將會3年後再續之路。

哈哈!祝大家考PMI-ACP和續證成功!

仲有之前agile meet up講過agile好似一個宗教,唔止係為左考試/證書,更希望能活學活用,將agile mindset傳揚出去,create an awesome product !!!

    P.S 佢冇寫適唔適用於PMI-ACP,但我估應該得,因為佢係Technical skill??

    (依個冇寫PMI-ACP得唔得,但屬於PDU Category: CategoryA,我估計????)
