Competency. Collaboration. Assurance. This is the CDMS promise to consumers.
Utilizing common practice standards, the CDMS credential draws together practitioners from a wide variety of disciplines. Additionally, certified professionals must remain current in their field, through ongoing continuing education, and they must adhere to a strict Code of Professional Conduct. These requirements continuously remind CDMS certificants of their obligation to the individuals who are ill, injured, and/or have disabilities.
Underscoring the importance of consumer protection is accreditation of the CDMS certification process by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA). The role of the NCCA is to ensure the health, welfare, and safety of the public through accreditation of certification programs and organizations that assess professional competence.
