A Professional Society

The establishment of a society lies at the heart of our professionalisation model. The society would take over the competency maps from CDA and would be the governing body for accredited education and commercial training in Petroleum Data Management. It would also perhaps be the certifying body for competency.
We have conducted an online survey on this topic (the survey is still open – see https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/MDJ762N) and we will publish the analysis at the end of August.
We are currently working with one of the strong candidates which wishes to be this professional organisation in order to satisfy ourselves that it is a good home for the competencies we have developed. This work is on-going but it’s something we’re pursuing with some urgency.
