View Full Version : CPM Professional credentials (accredited institution?)

10-26-2009, 05:21 PM

I am confused with CPM professional credentials requirements :

On the ISM website I can find :
"All candidates need to pass Modules 1, 2, 3, and 4 of the C.P.M. Exam (scores are valid for five years). Applicants for C.P.M. certification must also (a) have five years of full-time professional (non-clerical, non-support) supply management experience, or (b) have a four-year degree from an accredited institution AND three years of full-time professional supply management experience."

I fully understand the 5 years experience, but I am not so clear about the 4year-degree from accredited institution + 3 years.
I made my studies in France (engineer school + 1 year post graduate degree in Purchasing in Business School), how can I know the list of accredited institution for ISM ? I have almost 3 years a professional experience in Purchasing, do you think ISM can accept my certification ?

Waiting for your feedback,

Hi Chris,
the best way to clarify is contact ISM on following link, and select the option "Professional Credentials/Certification try both links and then post your request, you will get prompt response, and they give a very good guidance to minutest details.



You can even contact the following person who handles French speaking countries
Organization Name: MGCM
Contact: Mr. Michel Gavaud
Email: mgavaud@mgcm.com

Hope this helps
Good Luck
