The training certification has been tailored according to the needs of public sector organisations.

Buchanan & Edwards CEO Eric Olson said: “It is an honour to be able to support the USAF with training that will further enhance its ability to treat its data as the critical organisational asset it is.

“We are looking forward to a long-term relationship that will benefit the USAF CDO, her dedicated staff, and all of the USAF.”

The training is aimed at preparing the entire cadre of USAF data stewards for the ICCP Public Sector Data Governance Professional certification.

The initiative will demonstrate a consistent standard of knowledge, skills and abilities for USAF data professionals.

Buchanan & Edwards Data Governance Lead Kathy Rondon said: “Through this ambitious training and certification effort, USAF CDO Eileen Vidrine is advancing the data governance maturity of her organisation in a deliberate manner.

“We are excited to be part of her efforts to accelerate her data governance programme.”

Last week, USAF in Europe – Air Forces Africa (USAFE-AFAFRICA) conducted the first large force exercise (LFE) to enhance combat readiness and increase tactical proficiency amid the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
