This course is a review to help prepare supply professionals for taking the CPSM® Exam 2: Effective Supply Management Performance. Participants will gain an understanding of the CPSM® program and of the breadth of content covered in CPSM® Exam 2: Effective Supply Management Performance. This program has the added benefit of providing many best practices that can be applied immediately in the participant's organization.

The course begins with a brief overview of exam content areas, question format and types, exam characteristics and test-taking tips. Due to time constraints, the course will not cover every task on Exam 2. Candidates will work on tasks weighted most heavily in the exam specification and where candidates may expect the most exam questions on the exam. Students will have the opportunity to identify areas for further study using ISM® — published study materials and other resources. Attending this course does not guarantee successful completion of the exams.
