(TEMPE, Ariz.) February 17, 2009 — The latest tool for supply professionals seeking to acquire the Certified Professional in Supply Management® (CPSM®) qualification is here. Institute for Supply Management™ (ISM) now offers a CPSM® Bridge Exam Online Review Course through the ISM Knowledge Center. A special introductory member price of $99 is available through May 6, 2009. Regular cost is $195 for ISM members, $295 for nonmembers. As with all ISM Knowledge Center online courses, supply professionals have access to their desired courses for one year starting from the date of purchase.

The CPSM® Bridge Exam Online Review Course is for current Certified Purchasing Managers (C.P.M.s). with a bachelor’s degree who are preparing for the CPSM® Bridge Exam. C.P.M.s in good standing who meet CPSM® requirements have the advantage of taking a single CPSM® Bridge Exam instead of the CPSM® Exam, which is comprised of three separate tests.

Participants get an in-depth review and assessment of the material in the CPSM® Study Guide by tailoring their course to their specific study needs. The course includes sample test questions, case studies and bonus supplemental content developed by subject-matter experts.

CPSM® Bridge Exam candidates can register for the online review course at Visit ISM’s Knowledge Center for a list of all other courses, pricing information and four easy steps to purchase online courses. For questions on the CPSM® qualification, contact ISM Professional Credentials at
