DAMA International's New Data Governance Professional Credential (DGP)
If you are in business data governance and/or stewardship, you now have the opportunity to earn the Data Governance Professional (DGP) credential offered by DAMA International in partnership with the ICCP. 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 will be granted to those professionals who have passed the Data Governance and Stewardship (DGS) exam either at the Practitioner (50-69%) or Mastery (70% +) level, have either a Bachelors or Masters degree, and 1400 hours of Data Governance and/or Data Stewardship experience. At least one contact name must be provided for verification of Data Governance/Stewardship experience for audit purposes. Costs are $285 USD for the exam and $125 for the credential for a total of $410 USD.
All professionals who obtain the DGP credential are required to fulfill 120 contact hours in the practice for every 3-year recertification / professional development cycle.
The DGP credential can be applied towards the CDMP in the future by taking the two mandatory exams required ($285 USD each) and meeting the education and experience requirements. No additional fees are required.
If you have already taken the Data Governance & Stewardship exam or have a CDMP, there are various ways to obtain the DGP:

Chapter guidelines for sponsoring the beta exams:
Some technical requirements:
If there is no DAMA Chapter near you, remote proctoring is available through the ICCP office (firstname.lastname@example.org). Since the beta exams are free exams, you must start your exam between 9:00 am – 2:30 pm Central Time (US) to take an exam without a proctoring fee. Remote proctoring via the internet for beta exams is available outside ICCP office hours for a fee of $50 USD per exam. The ICCP office requires two weeks’ notice for remote proctoring appointments. If you are taking a regular (non-beta) exam at $285 USD each, you have more flexibility in scheduling.
Keep in mind that these exams are beta exams. The scores have to be reviewed and adjusted by the DAMA / ICCP team after all the results have been received. Scores may be adjusted upwards, but will NOT be adjusted downwards on review of the performance of questions. The DAMA-DMBOK was one of the many sources used in exam development.
Unadjusted scores are immediately available after the exam has been completed. Official scores will be available after the DAMA / ICCP team meets again. Official profiles will only go out for paid exams. The ICCP office anticipates that all Data Governance and IS Core beta exam testers will have their scores by August 31, 2011. Contact the ICCP if you have not received your scores by August 31, 2011.
The DAMA-DMBOK can be ordered through www.amazon.com.
