Copyright © 2009 NDIA Technical Information Division. All Rights Reserved. CDM Certification and Apprentice Tutorial Background Certification initiated in 1990 by ADPA (the predecessor association to NDIA) Modeled after successful certification programs in medical professions, and other disciplines such as logistics, quality, contract management, etc. Common aspect among all viable programs is recognition that high levels of professional competence result from two sources: Knowledge and Experience 3
Copyright © 2009 NDIA Technical Information Division. All Rights Reserved. CDM Certification and Apprentice Tutorial Background (Cont’d) Knowledge can be gained in several ways; formal education, seminars, self study, job assignments, on-the-job training, etc. HOWEVER Experience can only be gained by actual performance. This is why recognized and respected certification programs in any discipline require individuals to demonstrate their knowledge, and possess the needed experience to become certified. For example, to become board certified as a surgeon one must have performed successful surgery of the specified type for the required number of times; and separately demonstrate their knowledge. 4
