Mini Course evaluation surveys are only available for those courses which align to the DoD FM program. There are no surveys available for credit outside the ones listed at this link: www.pdi2016.org/pdi-2016-mini-course-evaluations.

A verification of CPE earned at PDI will be sent to each attendee within four weeks of the PDI.

When you have completed and successfully submitted the required DoD FM mini-course survey, you will see a message that reads “Thank you for taking this survey!”  If you attempt to re-visit the survey link after successfully submitting, a message will read “You have already taken this survey.”  If you have any other concerns or see any other error messages please contact webmaster@asmconline.org.

ASMC needs to give everyone the allotted time (until COB June 13th) before we start tabulating results, and then RHQ will need time to compile and compare the survey data with live course scan-in data. We will be sending final confirmation emails/certificates out to all attendees no later than July 8.

The final confirmation email will contain a summary of CPEs earned at PDI, and printable certificates for direct-credit DoD FM mini-courses.


In order to process a 1556 for registration, payment (credit card number or check) and a PDI registration form for each registrant must accompany the 1556. A 1556 that is received without payment cannot be processed.

A majority of the expense of planning a PDI is incurred before the PDI occurs. We must have the revenue generated from registration in order to pay these expenses. Registration at the early rate is open until May 2, which allows attendees to register and pay for the PDI closer to when they can file for reimbursement.

There is no guest registration at PDI 2016; however, tickets are available on-site for the exhibit hall, lunches, and evening events. The costs for meals are as follows:

  • Exhibit Hall: $20 (includes breakfast)
  • Lunch: $40 each day
  • Welcome Dinner: $50

Breakfast is included in the PDI registration fee (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) as well as three lunches (Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday) and one dinner (Wednesday.)

For more information on how to claim per diem, see the Defense Travel Management Office’s Per Diem Rates Query page.

No. We do not have a registration rate for people who wish to attend for just one day, unless the person is a speaker and wishes to remain all day. All registrants pay the full amount. Single event tickets are available only for guests of registered attendees and only if space permits.

There are fees that ASMC must pay for each payment transaction. The $50 covers the cost of these fees. Please be sure when submitting your registration, that you have followed your agency guidelines for training expenses.


Once you register for the PDI, you will receive a confirmation email. Included in this email will be a link to make hotel reservations.
