According to the Institute for Supply Management Salary survey, people who participate in the survey that are CPSM Certified earn 8-10% more than people who are not certified. The certification alone will not result in a higher salary. Higher salary will result from higher performance and significant results. The information presented in the certification will give you the tools to produce better results. Our alumni have shared with us how they have achieved significant results based on the information you must study to prepare for the CPSM Exams.
The CPSM® certification requires three years full-time, professional supply management experience (non-clerical, nonsupport); a bachelors' degree from an regionally accredited institution or international equivalent. If a person does not have a bachelor's degree, the certification requires a person to have five years of full-time, professional supply management experience (non-clerical, non-support) with an associate's degree from a regionally accredited institution (or international equivalent). Or, if a person does not have a bachelors or associates degree, they need five years of full-time professional supply management experience (non-clerical, non-support).
The CPSM® qualification will enable professionals to gain a clear understanding of their organization’s supply operation and enable managers to take an active role in critical decisions. Each step in the development of an organization’s products and/or services is controlled by supply management. Current evolution of the profession dictates that a strategic level qualification is needed for professionals to effectively implement innovative supply strategies throughout their entire organization. The CPSM® will be a milestone for those professionals who take ownership of their careers. Surveys indicate those with professional designations report higher annual compensation than those without certification. Pursuing your CPSM ® qualification is your chance to leverage your knowledge and experience into career advancement.
