Core Knowledge Curriculum (CKC) & ADMS Designation

The CKC is the first comprehensive online learning program focused solely on disability management and leaves of absence in the workplace.   


As the gap in disability management learning resources was identified, and investigation into the possibility of offering a curriculum for current and prospective practitioners was begun. That process led to the development of the CDMC Core Knowledge Curriculum or CKC for short.

A case-based curriculum designed for an online delivery platform was developed from the collaboration between CDMS leadership, industry leaders, and subject matter experts picked for their experience and expertise. The goal was to create a resource for colleagues and the future of the profession.

In 2022, the Commission brought together another group of subject matter experts to review and revise the content of the CKC to ensure its relevance and currency in today’s environment for disability management specialists.

Although we do not endorse any study materials or preparation courses, Commission leadership continue to realize a need to provide disability management professionals with educational material to deepen their understanding of the field.

Pathway to ADMS Designation

The CDMS CKC opens the door to disability management professionals who do not meet the eligibility criteria for CDMS certification. It paves the way for achieving ADMS designation.

Those applying for CDMS certification may find the CKC a useful supplement in their preparation for the exam.
