Data Governance Professional Certification

The Data Governance Professional (DGP) credential is awarded to those who qualify based on a combination of criteria including education, experience and test-based examination of professional level knowledge of data governance and stewardship. This credential is offered at the Mastery or Practitioner level. To maintain certified status and continued use of the credential, an annual recertification fee along with a 3-year cycle of continuing education and professional activity is required.

The Data Management Association International (DAMA) authorizes the Data Governance Professional credential in partnership with the Institute for Certification of Computing Professionals (ICCP), which administers testing and recertification. This document outlines the requirements for obtaining the DGP.

Joining DAMA

DAMA is organised into a number of chapters, found in many countries around the world.

To find your nearest chapter, look on the Chapter List, and follow the link to their website. If that doesn't help (maybe there isn't a chapter near you?) then we also have a Global Chapter which covers everyone who doesn't live near one of the geographically-based chapters.
