CPDM – Newly Revised Leading Edge Curriculum

The CPDM designation has been at the forefront of disability management expertise for more than two decades. In 2021, IEA’s curriculum development team collaborated with industry experts in disability management, workers’ compensation, human resources and employment law to revamp the curriculum content and delivery format. The newly launched program is right up to the minute in its relevance and applicability for effective disability and absence management planning.  Feedback from those who have recently completed the course points to the success of a new state-of-the-art student dashboard, the flexibility of the program for working adults, and live webinars which allow participants to interact with subject matter experts.

According to CPDM graduate Taryn Johnson-Kline  SHRM-CP,  “the CPDM course curriculum has been outstanding.  As an HR professional, I found the office hours and weekly group discussions extremely helpful.  Not often do you find a group of like-minded professionals, learning and openly sharing their IDAM experiences.  Having this hour together weekly has helped me not only better apply the content but also be aware of trends and best practices.”

CPDM instructor led courses start September 29th, 2022. On-Demand CPDM courses are available 24/7 for students who prefer to move at their own pace. For more information visit our disability management webpage.
