Handling Errors

Occasionally, errors result from mismatched data between registration information provided and Global PMI records. We attempt to clear all errors, and to notify you of any issue. We also let you know if it is necessary for you to contact Global PMI directly to resolve the error.

How can you help prevent PDU reporting issues?

PDU reporting errors usually result from two specific discrepancies in data.

  1. Member Name Reported. There is a difference between the name used to register for an event and the member’s “official” name on file at PMI Global. During registration you will be asked to confirm that your registration name is the same as your official member name on the PMI Global site. (Using your official name helps prevent reporting errors). If you prefer not to use your official member name when registering for an event, there is a place in the process for members to indicate an alternate name for their name badge.
  2. Membership vs. Credential Number. Use your membership number. There is a difference between your membership number and your credential (certification) number. These are not the same -- and your credential number may be the same as someone else’s member number! You can find both your PMI ID and your Credential number on the dashboard page when you log in at  
    During registration, enter your member number. If there is a “number” mismatch when we report the PDUs, it will err out and we will be unable to complete the process for you. If this happens, you should receive an email with information to self-report the event’s PDU(s).

Member Support

It can take up to seven (7) business days to complete the reporting process.  If it has been more than seven (7) business days and it appears you are still missing PDUs that PMI MN reports on your behalf, send an email to and provide:

  1. Your name
  2. Your member ID
  3. Name and date of event, and
  4. The number of PDUs you are expecting

You will receive an acknowledgement of your inquiry within two (2) business days, and a response within five (5) business days.
