WHY CERTIFY?

The certification program gives data management professionals the opportunity to show professional growth that can enhance their personal and career goals.

CDMP® PREFERRED

Employers are awake to failure due to a mismatch in a team’s skill set and the data management capabilities required to do the job. Employers are seeking data certified professionals to reduce their risk, just as we have seen for project managers and service specialists over the past few years.

GOVERNMENT ANALYSIS

This Australia Government review of public sector data management in 2016 identified that the capability and capacity of public sector data workers needed to increase. It also highlighted the unrealized economy value of data already held by the State, Territory and Australian Government – this points to more data related jobs in both the public and private sector.

INVEST IN YOURSELF

  A focus on your strengths and weaknesses
  Commitment to ongoing participation in the industry
  That you are constantly improving the quality of your work.

HOW TO BECOME CERTIFIED?

DAMA International arranges CDMP Examinations either in conjunction with data management conferences and events or by request. In Australia, CDMP preparation training and examinations are arranged by Robinson Ryan in most capital cities. The exams are conducted online but must be supervised by a DAMA appointed examiner.
