How is this different to what was before? 
It is a significant development and change to what was offered before. There was never an offically PMI written PMP programme nor were teachers required to be officially trained by PMI. Now PMI provide officially approved content to selected providers and instructors must complete official PMI teacher training.

Where past students were relying on content from the PMBOK Guide and Exam Content outline, and various other sources now there is an official PMI written 385 page Student Handbook available exclusively to Authorised Training partners. These improvements are a significant benefit to students who seek to get PMP training the right way from PMI official sources.

What are PDU's?

The PMP® Certification is more globally recognised and Prince 2 was always more confined to the UK and parts of Europe.
