Our courses are designed to be practical, not theoretical. We leverage business-led frameworks such as the business model canvas, value proposition canvas and decision intelligence canvasses to teach how to align data strategy with business strategy.

There are similarities with the DCAM approach, but this site is not affiliated with DCAM or DMBOK.

CIMP offers a range of training and certification. All Cognopia instructors hold either CIMP or CIMP Ex certification.

The CIMP education packages offer great content to understand the theory and history of data management. Cognopia courses focus on practical application of the course material – getting out of the classroom using real-world examples from companies you recognise.

CDMP is a certification from the DAMA organisation. Their exams test the knowledge of the DAMA DMBoK (volume 2). CDMP certification also requires industry experience.

Cognopia courses are designed for data management professionals of all levels. We teach practical techniques to improve your data and the value your organisation can get from its data.

In our experience, students need more than theory. Our training helps data people speak the language of the business, driving up engagement and getting executive sponsorship.

If you are banging your head against a brick wall trying to get the business to understand your work, these courses are for you.

Absolutely. Many clients prefer a mix of self-study and live, online training. However we can arrange for face to face training if required.
