CEDS e-discovery certification
The CEDS certification is the first legally defensible, psychometrically-sound credential in e-discovery. The certification exam is the culmination of an eight-month process that involved 40 experts, 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. More are scheduled to take the exam at any of 560 ACEDS-Kryterion Testing Centers worldwide. ACEDS has created a listing of 35 FAQs about CEDS certification.
