Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) Certification Program

CSCMP’s SCPro™ is a rigorous, three-level certification program that offers supply chain professionals a concrete way to demonstrate a broad range of knowledge and skills that can help them achieve competitive salaries and titles. It also provides hiring managers with an independent barometer of a candidate's commitment to and success within the supply chain industry.
