CDMP Exam Substitutions

I am *** Certified, can I use this towards CDMP certification

The Data Management profession by its very nature has application in every aspect of business. DAMA International recognises and celebrates this. But what does that mean to the prospective CDMP holder? Very simply put, certificate certifications being awarded to Industry professionals have a direct relationship with a Data Management Function (see DMBOK® "Wheel") whilst others are awarded to individuals in an adjacent knowledge area. Prospective CDMP holders may now apply to DAMA International to recognise these certificates or exams as a substitute for a specific elective exam topic or a credit towards the CDMP exam. Details of these substitute and recognised certificates are available here
