(Tempe, AZ) — ISM has recently added a new online ethical standards course within its Knowledge Center. This course is designed to enable participants to practice ethical decision-making skills that test responses to situations and ethical dilemmas. Developed with ISM's Ethical Standards Committee, the course will acquaint participants with ISM's Principles and Standards of Ethical Supply Management Conduct with Accompanying Guidelines.

ISM's Ethical Standards Committee is committed to ongoing dialogue with supply management professionals. The Committee created this course to take advantage of today's technology and enhance not only the availability of an ethical message, but also to challenge supply professionals to think about how they would address ethical dilemmas. The course is structured so the participant can provide immediate feedback and input to the committee on a continual basis.

This online ethical standards class is a self-paced course that relates to Module 1 of the C.P.M. and A.P.P. Exams. It is free of charge and awards one continuing education hour (CEH) upon completion. This course will benefit any business professional looking to enhance their knowledge in properly handling ethical standards related issues. To enroll, visit the ISM Knowledge Center at, or call ISM's customer service at 800/888-6276, 401.
