We do not encourage going through this program as fast as possible. It is our experience that people learn in layers and through application, spread thoughtfully over time. This means taking the content slowly, reviewing the materials again after completing the section, and then taking time to apply the concepts before moving onto the next section of the course. Though in rare cases we have seen registrants complete in as little as 3 months, taking this approach typically takes 6-12 months and in our experience generates better outcomes.
When we launched the CPSCM™, we had an agreement for issuance of certifications by the University of Houston, and they agreed to issue certificates through their School of Continuing Education. Their School of Continuing Education has since closed and as such, we are in the process of identifying other third party universities for potential alliance. All existing and future CPSCM™ holders will benefit from any such alliances and will be notified accordingly.
The exams are online and on demand. You start and stop at your schedule. In order to progress from one Module to the next in the CPSCM™ Certification program, you need to pass the corresponding exam for the last Module completed with a score of 90% or better. You may retake the exam as many times as necessary to complete this objective.
We currently do not have recertification requirements. All current graduates of the CPSCM™ program will have lifetime certification. Should we change this model in the future, you will be grandfathered under the current system.
We are pleased to announce that we have upgraded our Learning Management System (LMS) platform to one that has the best capabilities in industry, and we feel is far ahead of the competition. This new platform has a management dashboard whereby management and their designees can see overall group performance to CPSCM™ Certification Program completion as well as individual level performance.
We have guidelines and not requirements for the CPSCM™ Certification Program. We do not believe in forcing you to wait until the time is right, but we can advise you on what we think works best. By far the biggest difference maker is experience. Procurement professionals with at least 3-5 years of experience will do far better than those with little to no experience. The CPSCM™ Certification Program presupposes this knowledge and experience in fact. We do not have educational requirements but we do find that those with bachelor’s degrees in related fields are already equipped with the mechanics of learning, studying, and applying information – we have not found however that putting an educational requirement is valuable. Our goal is the same as yours – increased personal knowledge and career success for you, and it is in this spirit that we make the above recommendations.
The feedback we have been receiving from both employers and program graduates alike is that it has been and continues to be recognized, and more importantly, that it has been making a difference. Companies that bring CPSCM™ graduates on board frequently tell us that they can see and feel the difference, and they come back for more.
Yes we will. Please have your employer send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to verify CPSCM™ Certification completion.
