GET CERTIFIED

We established the Certified Clinical Data Manager (CCDM®) program to help clinical data managers to institute a standard of knowledge, education and experience by which they would be officially recognized by the profession.

The CCDM® program has been designed to identify credible, trained, qualified and committed professionals in Clinical Data Management (CDM) and provides real-time feedback for organizations seeking to hire the best and the brightest in their field.

CCDM BETA EXAM

A Beta Exam is a new version of a certification exam that is in development. When the study is complete, candidates who participated will receive their results.

A subset of statistically performing Beta Exam questions will become the exam for the certification for which it has been developed and the previous exam is retired.
