The Project Management Institute (PMI®) encourages its members to continue their professional development by accumulating Professional Development Units (PDUs) via continuing education like training classes, organization meetings, reading books, creating content, volunteering and so forth. For full details on PDU requirements, look up the Continuing Certification Requirements Handbook (CCR).

To claim PDUs for attending a Scrum Alliance training class, you can report 7 PDUs for each day of training. So a 2 day Scrum Alliance class earns you 14 PDUs.
