Data Vault Training

Certified Data Vault Data Modeller Course (CDVDM)

This course is organised by EC Integrators in partnership with Genesee Academy (

Data Vault Modelling is rapidly becoming the standard modelling approach for the data warehouse. Over 800 major international companies are applying data vault modelling techniques today.

The data vault principles are specifically well suited for data warehousing programs and can provide the organisation with some very compelling benefits. These include auditability, agility, adaptability, alignment with the business, and support for operational data warehousing initiatives.

This course will guide you through these modelling patterns, rules and methods to prepare you for active data vault modelling in your organisation.
