Sue Geuens, President of DAMA International
The Certified Data Management Professional (CDMP) is the premier certification for Data Management Professionals worldwide. Take advantage of being at the DMZ conference this year and leave with this prestigious certificate in your hands. This one day event covers not only the exams themselves (1 for CDMP Associate & 3 for CDMP Practitioner) but also gives you a morning workshop in which a dedicated CDMP Presenter provides you with as much detail as possible on how to pass the exams, what is likely to be contained in each exam and also gives you time to practice for the “real” event. Please note – we do not cover the content itself – so you will not learn how to do modelling; how to build a data warehouse or how to implement a Data Governance program – BUT you will learn how to pass the exams and you will be encouraged and supported in your journey to certify.
For details on which level you should begin your journey (Associate -> Practitioner -> Master) please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy of your CV/ Resume: our CDMP review team is standing by to assess and provide you with the details on where to begin. For details on the CDMP itself, please visit https://dama.org/content/certification. You do need to be a DAMA Member to become CDMP certified so please visit https://dama.org/membership to find out the different opportunities to become a member either as an individual or part of your organization.
