Coaching and Study Groups

Study Groups

An effective strategy to use when preparing for the certification exam is to study with others who also plan to take the exam. Forming Study Groups within your organization or locally with others can provide you with support and a range of expertise spread among the group to acquire knowledge and confidence to pass the exam.

The recent webinar, Preparing for the CCDM Exam: An Insider’s View, addresses many questions exam candidates have about the value of certification, how to set up the appointment, notification of results, logistics at the testing center, test taking strategies, preparation resources, and how to form a study group.
