Certified Data Steward (CDS)

Data stewardship training and certification

Data stewards are typically accountable for the data strategy, definition, requirements, and quality of the data under their stewardship.

You will play a leadership role within your company's data governance initiative - whether this is driven by regulatory needs, or simply by the realisation that your organisation cannot continue to waste IT spend on systems and projects that are hamstrung by poor quality data.

The Certified Data Stewardship program formalises the role of the data steward, provides a foundation of data literacy for business users thrust into the role, and drives recognition of data stewardship as a profession.
