Collection Management 

Professional Certification 


The Certified Collection Management Professional (CCMP) Program supports the Defense Collection Management Enterprise (DCME) through the administration of the accredited1 CCMP-Fundamental (CCMP-F) professional level certification.  The CCMP-F assesses collection management (CM) knowledge that is common, core, and critical to CM activities across the DCME.  By earning the CCMP-F, certificants demonstrate knowledge that supports work in joint, multiple-intelligence discipline environments across all echelons of the DCME.  This knowledge includes a common professional lexicon, or list of professional terms and concepts, and it enables collection managers to transfer their knowledge from a job at one DCME organization to any other.   

The CCMP-F exam is open to any individual with a TS/SCI clearance in the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC), though most candidates come from within the DCME.  All candidates must be in good standing with their component.  Additionally, contractors must obtain one of two forms from their contracting officer (or CO Representative) during the application process.  Exams are offered at no cost through over 17 worldwide testing centers.  Candidates may enroll in the exam on AGILE (on JWICS at https://agile.dodiis.ic.gov/ by searching for offering “DIA-INC-CUR-5000”. 

In addition to answering questions about the program and assisting with enrollment, the CCMP Program Management Office (PMO) is the central point of contact for certificant verification and maintenance (i.e., renewal) of the credential.  Contact the CCMP PMO using the information posted below:
