Thank you for your interest in the Certified in Data Protection (CDP)® designation. To be eligible for certification, candidates must be members of Identity Management Institute® (IMI), complete this application to request a study guide, pay the required fees, and pass the online examination. If you are not currently an IMI member, please also submit a membership application.
Candidates must demonstrate at least 40 points of combined professional experience, post high school education, or professional certification to be approved for the CDP examination. Each year of education or experience and certification equals 10 points.
Upon receipt and pre-approval of your application, you will receive an online payment voucher for the appropriate membership and/or certification fees. This process is introduced to pre-approve applications prior to sending payment requests and avoid collection of credit card numbers on the application. Upon receipt of your payment, your application will be processed within one business day and you will receive the study guide.
