Data Analyst

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 Petroleum data - the Petroleum Data Management Certification Committee (PDMCC). 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 PDMCC consists of three subcommittees. The Data Analyst Sub Committee is content specific to Petroleum Data Analysts and has the function to develop and maintain the certification item banks and supporting resources in their field.

This Sub Committee is actively recruiting new members to keep the information up to date as CPDAs pass through the program. For more information on this Sub Committee, or to get involved, please contact certification@ppdm.org.
