Enhance Your Data Management Career!

The CDMP credential is awarded to those who qualify based on a combination of criteria, including education, experience, and test-based examination of professional-level knowledge. This certification was established by DAMA International in 2004 as the gold standard for measuring accomplishment in the Data Management field.

The Revamped CDMP Structure

In today's world, Data Management professionals are no longer all coming from IT. In fact, more and more are evolving from a business role, which means that our profession is coming into its own. It also means that the tradition of certifying with a core IT exam has changed. DAMA International has seen this change coming and has elected to revamp the CDMP to enable business DM professionals to certify. We have also seen that people are "getting into data" a lot earlier in their careers and are all excited about being certified. So what is the new CDMP going to look like? The new approach provides a career path; it also allows individuals to grow through the levels and see a benefit early on in the process.

We are very pleased to announce the revamped structure below:

    • The CDMP Associate
    • The CDMP Practitioner
    • The CDMP Master
    • The CDMP Fellow

All CDMP Exams test your knowledge of the DAMA Data Management Body of Knowledge version 2 (DMBoK2). You can obtain a copy of the DMBoK2 here.
