For those interested in the CDMP Credential ….

A Certified Data Management Professional (CDMP) credential is awarded to professionals in the field of data management based on a combination of education, work experience, and demonstration of knowledge through text-based examination. Becoming a CDMP will allow you to promote your skills to current and future employers and to improve your capabilities as part of your continuing professional growth.

As a chapter of DAMA International, IRMAC wants to help you prepare to become certified by offering an exam preparatory course for the Data Management Fundamentals exam. In this 21-hour prep course, you’ll learn from CDMP Fellow Deborah Henderson about the requirements of the CDMP and review the DMBoK, which is the standard study material for the CDMP, and global standard reference to best practices in data management.

The CDMP exam is administered by the Data Management Association International (DAMA International) in partnership with Robinson Ryan Inc. For details about the examination process, visit DAMA International’s site on the CDMP ( or watch our introductory webinar (
