PDUs Claimed: You will need to allocate the PDUs between the three PMI Talent Triangle categories: Technical (Ways of Working), Leadership (Power Skills), Strategic (Business Acumen).  The allocation between them would depend on which sessions you attended.  Each session identifies which skill it addresses.  If you were to participate in all the sessions for both days of the live event, you would have a total of 11.25 PDUs.  For Thursday you would receive 6.0 PDUs and Friday 5.25 PDUs.
