CSCMP SCPro™ Certification
The role of today's supply chain management professional has evolved dramatically over the past few decades. Where professionals used to be skilled in just one area, such as procurement or manufacturing, the modern supply chain professional is required to have multi-disciplinary expertise, demonstrable and quantifiable success, and preferably continuous study of the field in the areas of supply chain management, evaluation and planning.
The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) offers state-of-the-art training and certification programs that provide knowledge, best practices, and credentials to help professionals make impactful changes in their careers and organizations.
CSCMP certifications and training are unique in the supply chain association space in that we are all-inclusive, representing the end-to-end supply chain, which means our training and development includes all verticals from sourcing to customer service, and are applicable to all industries and business types. The curriculum is suitable for a range of professionals working in the industry.
The SCPro™ Certification program is a tiered program starting with entry-level certifications to master the fundamentals of supply chain management, and progressing into a tiered, professional-level program that assesses progressive knowledge and skills across integrated supply chain activities.
Leveraged for career growth, SCPro™ is the only certification that requires knowledge of the eight learning blocks that comprise the end-to-end supply chain, as defined by CSCMP. This process validates an individual’s ability to strategically assess business challenges and effectively implement supply chain improvements through the analysis of real-world case studies and developing a comprehensive project plan to achieve results such as a positive ROI.
Developed in partnership with supply chain experts and academics, the SCPro™ Certification program is recognized by both companies and educational institutions as the most comprehensive certification available in the industry.
