Validity of 35 contact hours / PDU

Hi All,

I attended PMP training in May 2014 and collected the 35 contact hours certificate (the training was based on PMBOK V5). But I have not applied for PMP exam. I am planning to write the PMP in June 2016. Is my 35 contact hours that I collected 2 years back still valid or should I need to reappear and get the 35 contact hours.  Is there any PMI rule stating that the training should be completed before X period from the date of exam?

Also, can I show my person learning as 35 contact hours?

Please clarify.

35 Hours Training is valid for life time. It never expires.  So, you can apply in Jun 2016. 

Personal learning can not be shown as 35 contact hours.
