Professional Credentials (Formerly Known As Certification)
The debut of the CPSM at the 93rd Annual ISM International Supply Management Conference was a huge success. Everyone enjoyed the excitement at the Sunday kickoff. For the first time, the CPSM Bridge Exam was available to C.P.M.s in good standing with a bachelor's degree. There were well over 150 C.P.M.s who took the Bridge Exam. What an exciting time as the profession elevates to a higher level.
