In addition, ISInc is also a registered education provider for the Project Management Institute so we do provide Professional Development Units (pdu’s) for our project management courses. Again, talk to an ISInc Education Consultant by calling 916.920.1700 or email [email protected] for more information on how to obtain these credits and for the amount of credits available for each course.
