NDIA Members Earn Configuration and Data Management Certification

Northrop Grumman Corp. and L-3 Communications employees were the 2006 leaders in the Technical Information Division Configuration and Data Management certification and apprentice program.

For the year, Northrop Grumman had 25 successful candidates, and L-3 Communications had 21. In most cases, the two companies supported their staff by providing the training and cost of examinations. This resulted in many of their CDM staff achieving the coveted professional status as an National Defense Industrial Association Certified Configuration and Data Manager or NDIA Certified Configuration and Data Specialist.

All candidates were required to successfully complete a comprehensive examination to become certified. The exam high scorers were Virginia B. Sauers of Northrop Grumman for the CDM manager level exam and Laura K. Lindberg of Northrop Grumman for the CDM specialist level exam.
