Once credentialed, the SCCA and/or SAM Professional must begin working toward completing 60 (sixty) professional development units (PDU) over a three year period to maintain their credential and qualify to renew the certification at the end of the three year cycle. Your first Certified Credential Renewal (CCR) cycle begins from the day you pass the exam. Your first certification/CCR ends on the third anniversary day of passing the exam.
A PDU is equivalent to one hour of instruction.
To be valid, your PDUs must be delivered via an Approved Training Resource (ATR). An ATR is defined as any accredited institution of higher learning or recognized Professional Training Program. To be approved, the PDU content must apply to one or more of the fourteen (14) Key Competencies; one of the six (6) Core Practice Areas; or one or more of the four (4) recognized Industry Standards as noted in The Institute’s Guide to the Technology Asset Management Body of Knowledge (TAMBOK).
Each credential holder must complete at least two (2) hours of approved training in 7 of the 14 Key Competencies and two (2) hours in any of the Core Practice Areas during their three (3) year renewal period.
