Can I use PMP training hours for ASQ RUs
Hi,
I have couple of questions. Appreciate your inputs and guidance.

Can I use 30+ hours of training I received for PMP certification for earning RUs for recertification of CSQE. If yes, can I use it under professional development activity type or student? I went through FAQs, but not clear about this.
Also, due to current circumstances my manager may not be in a position to provide employment reference letter in a letter head. What are the alternatives to use current employment for earning RUs? Can I submit pay slips by covering key information?

Best Regards,
Raghu

Hi Raghavendra C M‍ - I checked with the team - here's their reply

Typically if the training is in the form of a course that would go in the courses – student section. If they wouldn’t classify the training as a course or class for any reason they could use Professional Development at 0.1 RU per hour.

For the employment documentation question we would accept a W2 or other similar documentation with any sensitive information redacted or a letter from their HR dept.
Hi Trish,

Thanks for the response.

After submission for recert, if its decided that a certain claim should be under some other category, will it be changed by ASQ and approved. Hope, recert submission is not rejected. If you could confirm, it would be great.

Hi Raghavendra C M‍ - I checked with the cert team. Hope this helps

If it is a simple situation of mis-categorizing an RU activity, we would accept the RU credit anyways without any additional action needed by the applicant.

In the event we had a concern whether an activity qualifies in any journal category we would reach out and communicate with the applicant and present an opportunity to clarify or submit additional documentation.
Thank you Trish Borzon‍ for the response. Appreciate it.
