ACEDS, the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists, a Barbri Professional Association and the world’s most globally recognized foundational certification for e-discovery professionals, aims to bridge the education gap for new entrants to the industry by offering a power-packed certificate program that can give anyone the basics of the purpose and meaning of e-discovery. The new E-Discovery Executive Certificate (eDEx) training program helps an aspiring e-discovery professional “go from zero to 60 in a short time,” says Mary Mack, ACEDS executive director. “For us, this is the foundational training, where someone can very quickly understand the vocabulary and functional requirements of the space,” adds Mack.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking.

CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.
