Certified Digital Artist (CDA) focuses on three key creative industries: Visual Effects, 3D Animation and Games.
Certified Digital Artist details standards by role, grounded in its competency framework covering skills, knowledge and abilities, specifically for entry level positions.
For talent, this helps provide clear goals and expectations for their learning path. This clarity about what competencies are relevant today allows them to stay at the forefront of a rapidly changing industry, see how they can progress, and develop their career over a lifetime.
For studio’s recruitment teams, this accreditation helps reduce the drain on teams and resources normally allocated to dealing with unqualified applications for entry level roles. The ability to recommend these unified skills and competancies simplifies feedback to applicants and sets clear expectations for applicants wanting to reapply.
For educational facilities or studio learning and development teams, CDA provides the much needed support to create curriculums that adequately prepare talent standards that would enable them to provide training that is "fit-for-purpose."
