Ways to Earn CEUs

PMI provides several ways for certified professionals to earn the necessary CEUs each year. However, CEUs may be earned from a variety of sources. All programs that have prior CEU approval through PMI or another qualified credentialing organization (i.e., AMA, AHIMA, AAPC, AMBA, PAHCOM) will be accepted. Continuing education programs without prior CEU approval will be accepted upon verification of its legitimacy and relevancy.
