IDQ Webinars: with Joy Medved


Information Quality Certified Professional (IQCP) — Keeping it Current!



Whether you have already passed the IQCP or are planning to take the exam, this webinar provides everything you need to know to keep your certification current. By maintaining your IQCP credential through recertification, you confirm your commitment to ongoing professional development in order to keep your skills and knowledge current.

To maintain the integrity of your certification, IAIDQ requires that you recertify every three years—either by Journal or by Re-examination. The Recertification Journal is a simple process of obtaining a minimum of 60 Recertification Credits (RCs) within your three-year Recertification Period. These RCs can be accumulated by participating in a variety of professional and academic IDQ-related activities – meaning that the activity relates and is consistent with at least one of the six (6) Domains and the associated Tasks, Knowledge and Skills of the IQCP framework.

This webinar will help answer your questions about how to recertify, what qualifies as a Recertification Activity, and how to record and get credit for all your IDQ-related Activities. You can also find many helpful tips for Recertification included in the Recertification Journal, which can be downloaded at:
