Chris is one of only 3 Fellows of DAMA-I and has 40+ years of Data Management expertise & has achieved a great success rate for students attending his courses.
Other CDMP training classes:
Several other CDMP training classes are available:
A new specialist examination, “Data Architecture” is currently under development, which will bring the coverage of the knowledge areas to eight disciplines of the “DAMA wheel”. Additionally, the Data Management Fundamentals question bank is constantly being refreshed with some questions being cycled into the “sample” exam.
The process for recertifying prior DMBoK1 CDMP’s into the new environment is in final testing & will roll out in late Q3.
