Certification Committee

PDMCC Organization

The Petroleum Data Management Certification Committee (PDMCC) is made up of subject matter experts dedicated to advancing professional development for the data management community through certification programs. This group of dedicated volunteers (90% CPDA-certified) oversee the governance of the Certified Petroleum Data Analyst (CPDA) Examination, working closely with the Registrar to review applications, support CPDA candidates, maintain the exam item bank, review and approve exam results, and ensure the integrity of the credential is upheld. Members of the PDMCC also deliver CPDA Information Sessions to public and corporate audiences throughout the year, and bring current CPDA's together through CPDA Interactive events to engage CPDA's in dynamic discussions relevant to their work and current professional issues.

Certification is governed by the PDMCC with oversight from the PPDM Board of Directors, and has no attachment to training activities conducted by PPDM.
