Oh Canada! ACEDS Has a New Canada CEDS Exam!: eDiscovery Best Practices

You may have heard that the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS) has been developing a Canadian version of their flagship CEDS program.  ACEDS has now released a new beta version of their Canada CEDS exam and Canada-based eDiscovery professionals can currently take it at a huge discount!

Legal and e-discovery professionals from Quebec to Vancouver have been working to prepare an exam and study materials purpose-built for Canadian practitioners. The Canada CEDS exam and certification is based on the laws, legal practice, and customs of Canada. The beta exam is the final critical step in the development of the CEDS Canada exam, which will launch later this year. Beta exam participants will take an extended-time exam with 160-170 questions.

Once the beta exam closes on August 31st, the results will undergo full statistical analysis. At the completion of the analysis, questions for the final exam are selected and a cut score will be established. Beta participants are graded using the same questions and passing score as the final version of the exam.
