Professional Development Collaboration

The Professional Development area is made of three key groups – the Professional Development Committee (PDC), PPDM Education Advisory Committee (PEAC), and the Energy Data Management Certification Committee (EDMCC).

The work of the PDC involves raising awareness, coordinating PD activities and providing a large breadth of learning opportunities to members within a specific discipline in an effort to guide and advance the profession itself.

The PEAC is a new committee focused on Educational opportunities, including training, working with post secondary institutions and more.

The Energy Data Management Certification Committee (EDMCC) is made up of subject matter experts dedicated to advancing professional development for the data management community through certification programs. The primary certification available now is the Certified Petroleum Data Analyst (CPDA™).

If you have a passion for improving the professional development of those in the data management community, please consider joining one of these great teams.
