Collection of CCDE Study Approaches & Testimonials


This group of links discuss the CCDE program in a general sense. The point of these links is to provide the CCDE candidate with a perspective on the program and with motivation to pursue the certification. I have sorted them in reverse chronological order, because the CCDE program has changed over time – in its second version as of this writing. Therefore, older links might not be as relevant as newer ones to current candidates.
