A CDM Certification is the Philippines’ only trusted digital professional certification recognized by the industry. It is an assurance of credibility, integrity, and the highest standard of digital education. Recognized by a network led by the Internet and Mobile Marketing Association of the Philippines (IMMAP) and the 500+ members of CDM’s Subject Matter Experts, industry partner associations, top corporations, and local & international advisory board members, it is a formal documentation that demonstrates proficiency and competency in digital.

Your CDM Certification and education will allow you to network with like-minded professionals.
