    Question CDMP certification-Data warehousing speciality exam experience

    Hello Everyone,

    I was wondering if any one could share their experience about CDMP certification specifically Data warehousing speciality exam.

    Mainly,

    1) What's the difficulty level of DW speciality exam?
    2) Are the self study material provided by ICCP covers all questions in exam?
    3) If not, please suggest reference materials.

    I have registered myself for online class by ICCP and going through self study material. I plan to appear for certification in next 3 months ,so I want to go through study material only focussed to clear the exam. Please suggest

    14 or 15 years of slinging databases and I have never heard of that qualification or remember seeing it listed on a candidate's resume.
    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    It's very popular certification but you might not have heard about it because it is not conducted by any RDBMS vendor but an independent institute - ICCP.

    For more details about ICCP, go through this link:-

    same here, but all kinds of certifications popping up for someone to make money on the classes and exam fees. Gotta eat right?

    CDMP was an important certification circa 1980 when DPMA split into ICCP and AITP. Every few years I hear someone refer to it, usually when reciting their credentials.

    I assumed that it was still being offered, but I've never heard of anyone actually taking the tests for well over twenty years.

    I'm just being nosy, but is it still actually accepted as a credential when you are applying for a position? Are there organizations that still cite it as a credential that they value?

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.

    I recommend all just learn how to do their jobs. I have run across quite a few people with certifications who were practically useless when it came to performing a large amount of the work of supporting a database and others who have never had a certification of any type and were the go to person in almost any issue. As I mentioned above, I think the only people who have ever really benefited from a certification were the folks vending classes in preparation for an exam and those that charge to administer the exam itself.
    I must admit, I did get certified way back on DB2 V7(2001, I think), though for free. I was at an IDUG conference and had a time slot where there wasn't a topic available that I was really interested in, so went over and took a couple of the certification tests and a few months later got a certification and a pin or something, couldn't tell you where either are nowadays though.
