EDP Program Certified/Designated Over 135 People in 2015

Friday, April 08, 2016

Lutz, FL - Xplor International, the worldwide electronic document systems association, today announced that over 135 people earned their Electronic Document Professional (EDP) certification or Electronic Document Associate (EDA) designation in 2015.

The large number of certified and designated individuals is due in large part to GMC Software, who took the EDP Challenge and now has over 20% of their staff with an EDA or EDP. They have since committed to participate once again for 2016. 

EDP certification, launched by Xplor International over 25 years ago, is an industry certification awarded to qualified individuals who have demonstrated broad knowledge of, and experience in digital communication, whether in print, over internal networks or online-from document creation to distribution.

The EDA designation was introduced in 2009 as an entry-level designation that serves as a stepping-stone towards the EDP certification. It acknowledges a commitment to learning and upholding the EDP Program’s Code of Ethics. 

The EDP program is internationally recognized and specifies a high standard of ethics, knowledge, and industry experience for those professionals achieving certification in the field of electronic document systems. It serves as a catalyst for quality; professionals improve the industry through individual growth, knowledge sharing and mentoring others.
