I believe the recertification journal gives guidance on the type of evidence required for each category used for RUs

Keith Gardner‍ this is straight out of the Recertification Journal instructions.

How to Claim Multimedia RU

RU Credit:

  • 0.25 RU per 15 minutes

Category Maximum: 3.6 RUs

  • To receive credit in this category, media must be watched or listened to for a minimum of 15 minutes. No credit may be claimed for simply adding media to a quality library.
  • Electronic media includes, but is not limited to, audio and videotapes, CD-ROMs, DVDs, podcasts, etc. Webinars should be claimed under the Professional Development category (A).
  • The media source must directly apply to the Body of Knowledge OR be job-enhancing.
  • If the media source is part of a training package, credit would be issued under the Courses-Student Credit category (D).
  • Double credit will not be awarded for activities associated with the media source. Example: If a videotape is shown at a local section meeting, credit can be claimed either for the section meeting OR for viewing the videotape-not for both events.
  • This credit is not given for reading books, articles, or written materials.
  • Web-based and computer-based courses, degree and nondegree format, may be claimed under the Courses-Student Credit category (D).

Documentation Required:

  • A letter on company letterhead signed by your supervisor or personnel department attesting to the date(s) you viewed/listened to the media source, its title and length of time, OR a copy of the media source with the above-listed information

During my recent recertification, I entered one item claiming all the multimedia together. The documentation letter signed by my manager had all the details of the individual videos and podcasts. It was a lot easier than entering each individual video or podcast and uploading the same document (I listed 32 items). I used the date of the last item for the date in the journal.

I mostly used some of the monthly ASQ monthly member bundle webcasts, Gemba Academy podcasts and Juran Institute videos.  An hour a month for three years will get you the maximum of 3.6 RU.
