Chasing PDUs: Free On-Demand PDUs at the PMXPO

Posted by Alan Casey

In this first edition of "Chasing PDUs" we highlight the PMXPO at

Note that while I am part of the Gantthead community, this is not a sponsored post.

Take advantage of free, on-demand PDUs at by registering for and attending their Project Management Expo (PMXPO).  Go to and click the "On Demand PMXPO link in the "Coming Events" box on the left margin.  If it's removed later, just search the site. 

Fill in a brief form, and Gantthead sends you an email with the direct link to the PMXPO.  For each session you attend (view) you may claim a Category 3 PDU.  Gantthead is a PMI Registered Education Provider.  Check your profile at and you will see the PDUs posted a few days after earning them.

The Verdict:

Cost:  A+ for Free Content!

Schedule:  A+ for providing these on-demand.  Perfect for fitting into my busy schedule.

Administrivia:  A Because Gantthead is a Registered Education Provider with PMI, these are easy PDUs to document and claim.  Gantthead even maintains your PDU history in your on-line profile.  No need to maintain these files at home.

Span Factor:  B  Gantthead will send you stuff if you don't uncheck the right box during registration.  I like their emails - they keep me connected.  I give them good marks here because my experience with their customer service have been outstanding.  I trust them to offer and honor an unsubscribe request.  I suspect that if you are new to Gantthead that you will return for their content.

GPA:  4.0 for an A
