WMU's Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering is a
Education Provider for the Project Management Institute® (PMI®). You can now earn Professional Development Units (PDUs) for your Project Management Professional®
(PMP®) credential when you take IME 6140- Project Management.
Whether you're thinking of sitting for the PMP® exam or you already hold your PMP® credential, you need Professional Development Units (PDUs). When you enroll for IME 6140- Project Management and complete the course with a grade of "B" or higher, WMU will issue you a certificate documenting 35 PDUs for your PMP® (a modest processing fee applies). This is the precise number or PDUs needed to sit for the PMP® exam or these PDUs may be used to retain/renew your PMP® credential.
Which courses offer PDUs?
Currently, IME 6140- Project Management offers PDUs. We may offer other opportunities for PDU credits in the future, including short courses. A short course may be developed for a specific customer need. See contact information below to discuss this option.
What prerequisites must I have to take IME 6140?
IME 6140 is a graduate course. All enrollees must possess a bachelor's degree, preferably in engineering or a related technical discipline. There are no course prerequisites, although proficiency with college-level algebra will be necessary for success.
How can I take IME 6140 to earn PDUs if I'm not an enrolled WMU student?
You may take the course if you hold a bachelor's degree from any institution of higher education. You merely enroll using WMU's "guest" status.
