Stephanie Mills has joined a select group of electronic discovery professionals from around the world in achieving the prestigious CEDS (Certified E-Discovery Specialist) designation.
The CEDS credential validates the proficiency of professionals who have demonstrated their knowledge by passing a four-hour examination which serves as a tough and objective measure of mastery in the challenging field of e-discovery. The certification program is administered by the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS), the premier global e-discovery professional membership organization. Since the exam was first offered in November 2010, professionals across 20 countries have earned the CEDS credential.
The CEDS certification verifies an individual’s e-discovery competence and knowledge regardless of their professional specialization. Among the CEDS designees are lawyers, litigation support staff, records managers, information technology (IT) specialists, technology officials, court personnel, paralegals, and consultants. The credential is an assurance to employers, colleagues, and clients that the CEDS-certified professional is serious about efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and risk reduction in all phases of e-discovery.
