CPSM PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS:

In order to be eligible for the CPSM, candidates are required to pass three (3) examinations and to document three years of full-time, professional (nonclerical, nonsupport) supply management experience and a four-year degree from a region- ally accredited institution. ISM membership is not a requirement for this qualification. If you are a Certified Purchasing Manager (C.P.M.) in good standing and have a four-year degree from a region- ally accredited institution, you may be eligible to take the bridge exam of the CPSM. The bridge exam will consist of contemporary content not cur- rently tested on the C.P.M. Exam. This bridge exam will be available in 2008 through 2014.

ISM strives to keep the exam development pro- cess separate from the preparation to take exams. Because ISM has maintained this separation, ISM was awarded accreditation by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) based upon ISO/IEC 17024 standard. ISM was one of three organizations to initially receive this designation.
