2020 Off to a flying start ...
The year has got off to a flying start with our first CDMP Bootcamp held at the end of January in Reading. We are lucky in DAMA UK that the DAMA-I VP for Professional Development is our very own Chris Bradley, who led this 2 day CDMP Bootcamp. The training was a sell out with 20 attendees all of whom passed the Information Management Fundamentals exam, which means that they are now all CDMP certified at Associate level. Eighteen of them achieved scores over 70% which means that they qualify to apply for CDMP Practitioner, which means taking 2 specialist exams, and thirteen achieved scores over 80% which qualifies them to apply for CDMP Master.
Based on the success of this event, we will be running more later in the year. We aim to keep the costs as low as possible, and this time we were able to offer the two day course, with the exam fee included at just £525.
Congratulations to all 20 newly Certified Data Management Professionals
