Dear Arundhati,

PDP is the new name of erstwhile Academic Development Programme (ADP) which remains for the period of 25 hours. PDP's are the lectures, seminars, etc...conducted by ICSI on daily basis or weekend basis or half-day basis and will have PDP hours mentioned in it. PDP's will be counted after completion of Executive Development Programme (EDP) and during the course of CS Training.

REGARDS
