CSDS training, exams coming soon

21 Aug. 2014

In keeping with tradition, the Certified Secure Destruction Specialist (CSDS) examinations will begin in December and continue through the winter, culminating in a final exam opportunity at the annual NAID conference in Dallas, Texas in March 2015.

To help candidates prepare for the exams, updated training materials will be released in October. This year’s CSDS training will mirror those available last year, including an online self-examination and a series of recorded webinars for each of the seven subject matter areas.

“We are currently updating the training and exam materials to incorporate the modifications or additions warranted by changes to legislation or new research published since the last curriculum update,” said Katie Mahoney, NAID Director of Certification Operations.“There’s a lot of interest in the program, probably due to the success of Shred School and the CSDS Speakers’ Bureau.”
