The PPDM Association has a certification committee in place to design, promote and develop certification programs that will be industry recognized within the realm of Energy data - the Energy Data Management Certification Committee (EDMCC). The certification programs will become the basis for industry based job family hierarchies as well as the guidelines that can be applied for hiring managers to recognize the “base knowledge” required for various aspects of data management within this space.

The Geospatial Sub Committees focused on content specific to a Geospatial Certification, with a function of developing and maintaining competencies and potentially developing a credentialed examination for geospatial professionals. This committee has been inactive, and will remain inactive until further notice.

  • Samantha Murray, Independent
  • Andrew Tomlinson, OSUM
  • Scott Sitzman, ConocoPhillips
  • Jon Connick, Nexen
