Certified in Supply Management™ (CSM™) Program FAQs



Why did ISM discontinue the CSM?

After review of the ISM certification program and research with an outside consultant, ISM found that instead of dividing resources into two certifications, it could better serve procurement and supply chain professionals by having one certification regardless of whether or not they have a degree.

The Certified in Supply Management™ (CSM™) has been incorporated into the Certified Professional in Supply Management® (CPSM®) program to meet the needs of practitioners with, or without, a college degree. Look over the CPSM® program today and find out how you can break through the competition.
