Public Sector Data Governance Training & Certification Course

Our course is designed to help train members of your workforce to properly prepare and curate data so that analysts and data scientists can focus their time leveraging data inputs to solve important mission questions. Through our partnership with the Institute for the Certification of Computing Professionals (ICCP), we can offer foundational training that is conceptual (not technical) in nature and gives your workforce an understanding of the governance framework in a federal agency. Our Public Sector Data Governance training introduces the terminology and concepts of ethics and security, data governance roles and responsibilities, legal and regulatory regimes, metadata management and curation, and key deliverables of a public sector data governance program.

The cost of the three-day Public Sector Data Governance Training and Certification course is $1,495 and includes the proctored ICCP certification exam on day three of the course.

This training is available as an in-person, instructor led course or a virtual, instructor-led course, and is offered various times throughout the year. Please contact our Data Governance Program Manager, Michaela Caudill ( for information on needs assessment surveys & dedicated training courses.


Public Sector Data Governance Training & Certification Course

By completing our virtual two-day instructor-led mentoring workshop, which is tailored to include in-depth case studies relevant to the participant's own data governance environment, current Mastery Level certification holders will be granted the Principal Level certification from ICCP.

While the certification based on the exam score signifies knowledge of fundamental data governance concepts, the Principal Level certification signifies applied data governance capabilities. Since the two-day workshop dives deep into a use case tailored to the participants’ data governance environment, it is an opportunity to apply concepts learned in the first course to constructing your own data governance solutions.

The cost of the two-day workshop is $1275 and is limited to three to five students to ensure individualized attention.
