PRLog (Press Release) - Apr. 28, 2011 - MIAMI - Citing the words of Melissa Murer Corrigan, President of the Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE), ACEDS Executive Director Gregory Calpakis told the new CEDS-certified members of the fast-growing association of the value their CEDS credential brings to them and their organizations.

Corrigan, who heads ICE, the world's leading credentialing organization stated, "Attaining professional credentials provides an immediately recognizable indication that a candidate has demonstrated the skills necessary to meet a standard of quality set within the industry. In so many situations, credentials provide that ever-important foot in the door."

The ICE statement added, "Professional credentials provide an immediately recognizable indication that a candidate has demonstrated the skills necessary to meet a standard of quality set within the industry. In so many situations, credentials provide that ever-important foot in the door."

"Proper credentials are the first thing (many businesses) look for when hiring new employees and making promotions,” the ICE statement continued.

The Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists developed the CEDS certification in 2010 to serve the expanding e-discovery community.  It is the first legally defensible, psychometrically-sound credential in e-discovery.  Prior to CEDS, there were no credentials for the thousands of professionals who deal with e-discovery.

The certification exam is the culmination of an eight-month process that involved 40 experts, independent testing experts and a 272-item global survey. Lawyers, records managers, litigation support professionals, and IT specialists throughout the United States, plus Canada, Taiwan and the United Kingdom have earned the CEDS credential.  For more information, ACEDS has created a listing of 35 FAQs about CEDS certification.

“We take great pride in our process of developing the certification exam with the intent to have the exam accredited by ICE in 2011”, said Gregory Calpakis, Executive Director of ACEDS.  “In addition to the exam we provide training for the prospective candidates live and online.  All of our training courses are developed and taught by industry experts”, he added.

Calpakis sent the diverse inaugural class of CEDS-certified professionals a list of 25 benefits they get from the CEDS credential. Read them all at www.aceds.org/25
