Certification is another step daily money management professionals can take to achieve excellence in their profession and to establish themselves within the industry. The Professional Daily Money Manager (PDMM®) certification demonstrates dedication to the field and a commitment to continuing education. Certification is not required of members or of professionals who work as daily money managers, however, it does demonstrate an additional commitment to the industry.
