The ISM-Institute for Supply Management launched the Certified Professional in Supply Management® (CPSM®) program in May 2008. The CPSM® is recognized globally and identifies Supply Management Professionals around the world. The CPSM® is the professional credential that leads you into the decision-maker role and compels you to generate strategic solutions. You will have the capacity to effectively manage projects, whether you work in the non-manufacturing or manufacturing sector. The emphasis that CPSM® places on Supply Chain Integration is what allows you to continually evolve in the rapidly changing area of supply management.

The primary purpose of this ONLINE REVIEW PROGRAM is to prepare you to sit and pass the three CPSM® exams which are divided into three modules focusing on FOUNDATION, EFFECTIVENESS and LEADERSHIP for a total of approximately 90 hours of training. The multidimensional expertise demanded by this program will give you a macro perspective of strategic sourcing, cultural awareness, risk and compliance issues, organizational global strategy, logistics and social responsibility. Knowledge in areas such as finance and benchmarking of global suppliers is also covered in this program. The integrated skill set required to reach the professional designation in areas like commodity management, supplier diversity and supplier relationship management will drive value in every link in the supply chain.

This program will incorporate key educational points (CPSM Alerts), case studies, simulated exam questions with both question and answer methodologies and comprehensive reviews to prepare you to sit and pass the exams.
