Unfortunately, brand name counts. When employers decide whom to interview, graduating from Berkeley is usually a plus. Chico State isn’t. A fast way to get Berkeley onto your resume is to complete a Berkeley Extension certificate program. It’s not just fast, it may more validly certify your career competence than a Berkeley degree, which by the University’s own admission, emphasizes theory over practice. Berkeley Extension offers 75 career-practical one-to-two-year certificate programs, everything from accounting to web design, Cisco routers to college counseling, interior design to garden design, publishing to editing.

PDUs, Professional Development Units.  Oh, boy, that sounds too much like some bureaucratic punditry.  

PDUs are Professional Development Units, necessary for maintaining Project Management Institute (PMI)-certified credentials. They are a part of PMI’s Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) program. One PDU is worth one hour of project management training, though there are some exceptions to this rule.

Who is PMI?  The Project Management Institute (PMI) is a US nonprofit professional organization for project management.[3]

What about CCR’s?  

Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) Program. Your career is a journey, and you’ll need to stay relevant as the profession evolves and as the needs of employers grow and change. Maintaining your PMI certification is a significant competitive advantage.
