 CDMP Bootcamp:  ICCP Exam Prep for the Certified Data Management Professional (CDMP) and Certified Business Intelligence Professional (CBIP). 

Get two certifications at once!

A two-day exam-prep workshop and proctor of exams, Friday and Saturday, April 17th and 18th.

Do you need CDMP certification to further your career but nervous about taking the exams? Would you like to understand and better prepare for them? You're in luck! Join us for an intensive two-day bootcamp focused on exam preparation for six of the  ICCP exams(you only need to take three to get certified).  There will be no studying at this class.

This course will help you: 

  • Understand the DAMA CDMP certification
  • Familiarize yourself with the coverage of each exam outline
  • Learn the process of taking ICCP exams for the CDMP
