Ace the CDMP in One Month

Ace the CDMP in ONE MONTH

or we'll pay for the re-sit...

You know you need the CDMP Certificate to get past HR checks, wow your interviewer, and beat your peers to get your next dream job.

You also know the DMBOK is big, scary and boring. You have experience in some of the topics, so why is it so hard to read and understand the rest of the book?

If you’re in a hurry to pass the CDMP so you can get a better job and make more money, please read on.

The DAMA Wheel

You've seen the DMBoK. It's a big, thick book. So who wants to read that cover to cover, right?

Head of Data and Analytics, Multinational Pharmaceutical Company

To pass quickly, you need guided study

Right, first time

Focus

There are 628 pages in the DMBOK. We will show you which ones you must read, and which you can ignore

Steep learning curve

Fill-in

You have hands-on Data Management experience for some DMBoK topics. We'll help you understand the rest

Flexible

You're applying for jobs AND networking. Fit your study around your schedule, not around your course

Helping hand

You don't need to do this alone

  • Studying the DMBoK can feel overwhelming.
  • You don’t know what you don’t know.
  • How can you find the gaps in your knowledge and make a strategy to close them, so you can confidently clear the exam without risking the $311 examination fee?

Our course provides coaching and mentorship so you have a personalised strategy to clear the exam with your chosen grade, quickly and easily.

I passed in under one month, whilst running 2 companies and moving home. You can, too!

If you’re like me, reading the DMBOK from cover-to-cover was not an option. The content is too theoretical and boring to digest. I created a better way to pass the exam, inside one month, then trained my colleague Cliff to get his CDMP inside 2 weeks.

I’ll show you how you can Ace the CDMP in one month, too.

How you can Ace the CDMP in one month:

In order to quickly pass the CDMP, with the highest score possible, you need to focus your study on the areas where your knowledge is weakest.

Fortunately, this has a second benefit: developing the skills and filling in gaps in your knowledge that will help you get a better job and prove you’re a Data Management Expert.

We use our exam bank of over 400 CDMP Fundamentals questions to identify your weak spots and build a plan to close them quickly and easily.

Our approach is proven to work, and we’re so confident that we’ll pay for a re-sit of the exam if you fail to get the result you want.

Guided study, in action:

Right, first time

Step One

You take a "Mock Exam" - 100 questions in 90 minutes. We use this to identify your strengths and weaknesses

Steep learning curve

Step Two

We create your personal study plan that guides your learning and fills in any gaps in your knowledge and experience

Answers

Step Three

We tell you when you're ready to take the final exam and prepare you for success. You clear the CDMP Fundamentals exam with ease

Even though I was exhausted, taking the practice test was really great for me because it showed me what the real exam is like and highlighted a few questions where I really had no clue

Data Management Expert, Fortune 500 Healthcare Company

Who is the CDMP Academy for?

You would greatly benefit from the Cognopia CDMP Academy if at least three of the following statements are true:

Immediately after passing the CDMP I noticed a major change in the Interviews I had. Before I was selling myself to the company, but once I got the CDMP the companies started to sell me the benefits of joining their firm!

Head of Data Quality,  Top 20 Global Asset Manager

What's Included?

Here’s how we ensure you pass, first time, inside a month:

  • Decide what grade you need to achieve to differentiate yourself from your competition
  • Sign up and pay the course fees
  • Take our onboarding CDMP quiz to baseline your knowledge
  • Sit back and relax whilst we provide you the strategy you need to quickly and easily clear the exam

What are you waiting for? This is your opportunity to quickly and easily get CDMP certified!

Stop spinning your wheels, and stop worrying about the CDMP certification process. We’ll help you quickly and easily get certified so you can get on with finding a great new job opportunity and make more money.

Simply select your desired pass mark, pay the registration fee, and we’ll be like your CDMP Personal Trainer – here to guarantee you the grade you need to succeed.

If all you need to differentiate yourself is the entry level CDMP "Associate" designation, this is the right choice for you.

We will help you score 60% or more, attain the "CDMP Associate" designation and quickly catch up with your peers who are already certified.

The cost for this is the same as the CDMP Final Exam - $311 USD

Is this the right choice for me?

This membership is right for you if you agree with most of the following:

  • When I have less than 5 years experience as a data professional and need the CDMP to help me progress my career
  • When I am not planning to pursue the Specialist Exams
  • When I lack the motivation and willpower to study and need the quickest route to guaranteed success
  • So I can clear the CDMP exam as quickly as possible with minimal effort
  • So I don't feel like I'm falling behind my peers with less experience who already have the CDMP
  • So I know the core DAMA terms and can talk confidently about them in my next interview

Sign up and get going:

If you score 70% in the CDMP Fundamentals Exam you'll achieve the "Practitioner" level.

Note you'll also need to pass two "Specialist Exams" at 70% or higher if you want the Practitioner designation (not included in the guarantee)

The cost for this is $622 USD . We will invest our time and effort to help you succeed.

Is this the right choice for me?

This membership is right for you if you agree with most of the following:

  • When I feel like the Associate Tier is for entry level data resources and I have more to prove
  • When I want the option to pursue the Specialist Exams, but don't need the pressure that comes from chasing the Master Grade
  • When I need to differentiate myself from the job competition  
  • So I have the confidence that someone else will show me how to clear the CDMP and push me to take the exam
  • So I can keep my options open to pursue the Specialist Exams in future
  • So I can clear the exam quickly at a high grade without investing as much of my time or money

Sign up and get going:

The highest pass mark for the CDMP Fundamentals exam is the "Master Level". This is ideal for students that want to stand out - perhaps aiming to become a CDO or thought leader in the data field. 

  • Passing at the Master Level requires a score >80% in the CDMP Fundamentals Exam

We will coach you to score more than 80% in the CDMP Fundamentals Exam. You will need to take 2 further Specialist Exams (and pass >80%) to achieve the Master designation (not included in this price).

The cost for this guarantee is $933 USD - but think how much more valuable you'll be with this top-tier certification!

Is this the right choice for me?

This membership is right for you if you agree with most of the following:

  • When I have more than 10 years experience and need the highest tier of DAMA Membership to demonstrate my expertise in this field
  • When my colleagues and peers tell me I'm an expert but I don't have the qualifications to prove it
  • When I need the confidence that comes with the highest-level grade from the Data Management Association to ensure people listen to me
  • When I'm happy to pay more money to guarantee my success and get more personal engagement with the trainer
  • So I can become a Chief Data Officer, an independent consultant, and to stand out as a Data Management thought leader
  • So I can prove that I am a certified expert that demands respect to myself, my clients or my employers

Sign up and let's prove you are a Master:

Struggling to choose?

If you are struggling to choose, I’d suggest the following strategy:

  1. Eliminate the “worst” choice – if one is clearly not what you need, eliminate it first 
  2. Ask yourself why you eliminated that choice (price/grade/description) and eliminate the next most similar option
  3. Buy the remaining choice as it’s right for you!

Want to join, but want to spread the payments out? Why not buy now, and pay later?

Cognopia offers flexible payment options to help you make the progress you need. Either pay in full, or pay in 4 equal monthly instalments. Don’t let your budget today get in the way of your dreams for a new job tomorrow. You’ll immediately get full access to the course content, but our guarantee only kicks in once the course is paid in full.

Need more information to make the decision? Here are some of your common questions, answered:

There are three main things you need to pay for:

  1. A copy of the DMBoK - the eBook is cheapest at around $50 USD - which you buy direct from DAMA
  2. The official CDMP Fundamentals exam - which costs you $311 USD - you need to purchase this directly from DAMA, but don't need to buy it until you're ready to take the exam
  3. Our CDMP Academy fees - depending on the grade you want us to guarantee this will cost between $311 and $933 USD

As such, the cheapest CDMP certification you could achieve is self-study, for $361 USD, and the cheapest CDMP Certification with our guaranteed grade is $682 USD in total.

If you take the CDMP Fundamentals Exam and miss your desired grade, it costs $200 USD to re-sit the exam. If you purchase our course, we'll pay that fee in the event you fail to achieve your desired grade. As such, we take away the risk of failure and act as insurance for students that need the confidence to pass.

We have established 4 different practice quiz types that we use to monitor and measure your progress:

  1. 100-question exams that mimic the real-world test
  2. 40-question exams that mimic the practice test
  3. 20-question exams for you to guide your own study, and;
  4. 10-question quizzes to focus on specific topics or knowledge areas

Our team monitors your progress on these quizzes and makes recommendations to close out knowledge gaps. Once we are satisfied that you know enough to score your grade, we'll let you know and prepare you for success in the final exam

It depends on your goals and objectives for getting CDMP certification, as well as your confidence levels. 

  1. The course content for each tier is broadly the same, the difference comes from the amount of effort (and risk) we take on to help you get the grade you pay for.
  2. If you want to become a "Practitioner" or "Master", it will take more time and effort from our team to get you the grade you pay for - you are paying for us to work for you to help you get the top score
  3. If budget is an issue, choose the Associate tier. Be aware that you will need to pay to re-sit the exam in the future if you decide you want to pursue Practitioner or Master level certification

There's nothing stopping you from buying a cheaper tier AND STILL scoring the points you need to achieve Practitioner or Master level grades. However we will only guarantee you the grade you pay for - so if you pay for Practitioner and score 69 then we'll pay for your resit. If you pay for Associate and score 69, our work is done and you'll need to pay DAMA again if you want the higher grade.

Absolutely! You can think of us like your Personal Trainer for the CDMP. We're here to help you get the grade you pay for, and our guarantee ensures we're both on the same team. Just like a personal trainer, we'll work out what you need to succeed:

  • For some, it's about motivation and encouragement, and we'll give you that nudge
  • For others, it's about holding you accountable and making sure you study - we can be that partner you need

Once you see the results on our quizzes you'll realise this is much more achievable than you first thought, you'll quickly pass the CDMP and realise it's easy to achieve your career goals and objectives.

The registration process is straightforward.

  1. Select your desired grade, and click on the registration button
  2. Enter your details, pick a username and password
  3. Choose your payment provider - we use Stripe for credit cards and offer PayPal for those that prefer to use it

That's it - once you pay you'll be sent a welcome email explaining how to use our content, and our team will be on standby to review your onboarding assessment and help you score the grade you paid for.

No problem. Here are the steps you'll need to take:

  1. Grab a copy of the DMBoK, as you'll use this to study as well as to help answer questions during the exam (choose the e-Book, as it's easier to search for answers)
  2. Sign up for our CDMP Academy with your desired pass grade
  3. Start using our content. We recommend students begin with a 100 question practice exam so we can guide you to study more effectively, but some students prefer to go through the content first and take the exam later. Either approach is fine - you know which is right for you
  4. When you've completed that practice exam, we will review your answers and send you a video explaining what you should focus your study on to score the grade you need
  5. You then focus your attention to improve any weak spots, studying the areas of the DMBoK we recommend or taking other practice exams to improve your exam skills
  6. Once we think you're ready to get the grade you've paid for, we'll encourage you to register for the real CDMP exam
  7. You will get access to the CDMP practice tests DAMA provides - this should be easy for you by then - but validate you're ready by scoring 40/40 on their practice exam
  8. Finally, we'll give you a pep talk and you'll take the real exam, confident you score the grade you want to attain

DAMA grades the exam online, so you'll get an email quickly after the test with the link to add your CDMP badge to your LinkedIn profile and CV - easy!

This is NOT necessary. Unlike other professional exams, the CDMP Fundamentals Exam is proctored online using "Honorlock" software.

To take the final exam you simply:

  1. Register and pay DAMA
  2. Install Google Chrome (if required), download Honorlock and follow their instructions
  3. Click "take test" when you have 90 minutes to spare and are ready for the exam

3 of our students took the exam on Christmas Day - so you can take the final test whenever you are ready and have the time.

Absolutely - we act as your CDMP Exam Coach and Mentor. If you find a question you cannot answer, send us a note and we'll help you as soon as we can

There are three main components to the Cognopia CDMP Academy:

  1. Video lessons explaining the CDMP study process, so you learn how to use your time effectively and how to approach the exam with the intent to score heavily
  2. Video lessons focused on the DMBoK knowledge areas you'll be tested on. We focus on the things you need to know to get the grade, not the noise and filler that makes up a lot of the DMBoK itself
  3. Over 400 practice exam questions that you can use to test your knowledge and identify where you need to focus your study

The exams can be taken any time. We'll keep an eye on your attempts and provide you guidance on what else you need to study to get the grade you've paid for.

  • We have also included "bonus content" - our Data Governance training course, which will help students with a technical background understand the role of Data Governance

Yes. The guarantee is more for our benefit than it is for our students. We are trying to improve our course, so we need to learn exactly what you need to ensure you succeed.

Once you go through our quizzes and content we will have high confidence that you can score your grade. The guarantee aligns our interests and ensures that we work as hard as you do to get you the grade you pay for.

This varies depending on your level of experience, the amount of study you've already done, and the grade you are aiming to achieve. Based on our analysis of the students so far:

  • 28% of people that take our Practice exam get <40% on their first attempt. They should be able to score 60% in one month, but it might take 6-8 weeks of study to score 80% or more
  • 39% of people score between 40 and 60% in their first attempt. They could get the Associate tier inside 2 weeks, or spend 4-6 weeks studying to get the Practitioner or Master tier
  • 19% of people score 60% or more on their first attempt, and could easily get a Master or Practitioner score inside a few weeks
  • 13% of people score 70% on their first attempt, meaning we could get them the Master tier inside a week 
  • And finally, 1% score the Master grade to begin with - typically those with deep experience

Once you complete our onboarding practice exam we will be able to advise you on your own learning journey, including how much time and effort you'll need to get the grade you pay for.

You'll have access to the course content forever. Whilst we want to help you quickly and easily pass the CDMP, ideally within a month, we also understand that sometimes life gets in the way.

 

We'll be here to help get you back on track if you need to take time to focus on a more urgent work or home priority. 

Most of our engagement is provided online, asynchronously. This means you complete a quiz and we provide feedback via email or video once we get the chance to review your score.

You can watch our video content at your own pace, or read the lesson transcript if you prefer to read. Take practice exams that fit your schedule - we offer 100 questions, 40 questions, 20 questions or 10 question quizzes - so you can fit them around your lunchtime.

For students that are truly stuck we arrange for direct, one-on-one tuition to ensure you get the grade you pay for.

The CDMP Academy is focused on helping students achieve their desired grade in the CDMP Fundamentals Exam, only. Some of our students are aiming to take the Specialist Exams, and you can use our 400 practice question bank to help prepare, but the guarantee only applies for the Fundamentals Exam itself.

Our content is continuously improving and we expect this to be a long-term resource that supports your learning journey and career path.

Absolutely. The purpose of this course is to help you get a better job and make more money by getting the CDMP certification. If you need to split the payments we offer the option to pay in 4 monthly instalments.

Note that the guarantee will only kick in once you have paid in full, but you'll have full access to the content immediately. 

If you live in a location where PayPal offers Buy Now, Pay Later, please choose that option as the guarantee will kick in immediately.

Yes. We are here to help. If you have questions or struggle with the content, get in touch. We want you to succeed quickly and we're here to make that happen.

I hope not! We have distilled what you need to know to pass into short video lessons that are no longer than 7 minutes in duration. You can quickly watch these, then focus your study on the areas of the DMBoK you need to understand. 

 

The final exam is based on the DMBoK, so you will have to read it, we're just here to make it less painful, more productive, and give you the help you need to quickly pass the CDMP.

Absolutely - in fact you're probably our ideal student. A big part of passing the CDMP with a high score is learning how to answer the multiple choice questions and use the knowledge you have. We'll help that knowledge escape your brain and help you hate exams a little bit less.

Great question - we guarantee that you'll achieve the grade you have paid us for. If you take the CDMP Fundamentals Exam and fail to achieve the score you've paid us for, we will pay for the $200 USD re-sit of the exam on your behalf, and we'll work with you to get the right grade next time.
