To report PDUs, you select Education or Giving Back:
“Giving Back” refers to activities that enable you to share and apply your knowledge and skills as a means to contribute to and help build the profession. The maximum number of total PDUs to be earned in Giving Back has decreased. Within Giving Back, you can report Working as a Professional.
