Registered Education Provider Program
Getting Registered for the first time
The process to become a Registered Education Provider has 3 stages:
- Validation of applicant being compliant with DAMA-I Registered Education Providers Policy
- Validation of proposed courses’ syllabus, outline, and details
- Validation of courses’ materials (a REP can be registered with a minimum of one course, and may submit more courses for approval during the term of being REP)
Once DAMA-I has validated the requirements, you will be asked to sign the Registered Education Provider Agreement and pay a yearly fee to receive the status and benefits of DAMA International Registered Education Providers.
Upon applying, the applicant will be contacted to provide additional information, including the provision of training materials for review. In addition, depending on the information submitted, a panel interview or other information must be made available.
Once the panel has evaluated all the submissions, a decision will be made. If the applicant is successful and fees have been paid, the applicant will sign the REP Agreement (TBD) and be added to the list of providers.
Registering additional courses
After being approved as REP, additional courses may be submitted for approval during the REP term. This process has two steps provided the REP term and conditions required are still valid:
- Validation of additional courses’ syllabus, outline, and details
- Validation of courses’ materials
- Instructors must maintain and keep current their Master Level and above certification during their program term.
- Providers will offer substantial discounts for official DAMA Chapter and DAMA-I events.
- Materials and offerings must be kept current with DAMA DMBOK versions and be submitted for DAMA-I review.
- Upon acceptance into the program, the applicant will pay a yearly fee. As of 2022, that fee is $1,500 USD per year but can change.
- Details about these obligations will be included in the Registered Education Provider agreement.
Providers will be licensed to use the following materials in their training offerings:
- A percentage of DMBOK figures (including the Data Management Wheel and Context diagrams)
- A percentage of text from the DMBOK
- Use of the DAMA Registered Education Provider Program logo
Providers will also benefit of:
- Listing on the DAMA Registered Education Providers web page
- Periodic announcement on the DAMA website
- An announcement in a DAMA Newsletter
- Announcement to DAMA Chapter leaders
Details about these benefits will be included in the Registered Education Provider agreement.
