The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) will offer this year's EDGE attendees the opportunity to take the SCPro Bridge exam. Launched last year, the bridge exam is designed for experienced supply chain professionals who want to earn CSCMP's Level One certification. This exam is a shorter, less expensive test than the traditional four-hour Level One certification exam it replaces, allowing candidates who currently hold professional credentials or certification from an accredited association andÂ have a baccalaureate degree or higher from an accredited four-year university or college orÂ four years of relevant supply chain management experience to achieve the Level One certification.
Several years ago, the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) launched a three-tiered SCPro Certification program. The program, developed in partnership with supply chain experts, features up-to-date industry intelligence and virtual technology that helps supply chain professionals verify the interpersonal, managerial, and technical skills needed to succeed in their careers. In order to reach more professionals, CSCMP is offering the 90-minute proctored SCPro Bridge exam during its EDGE annual conference, which is expected to draw more than 3,000 supply chain leaders.
A bridge exam review session will be held by Brian Gibson, supply chain professor and research center director at Auburn University, on Sunday, September 30, from 2:00 - 5:00 p.m. Professor Gibson will lead participants through a review of the information covered on the bridge exam and answer any questions about the exam.
Conference attendees can choose from three bundle purchase options:
The Level One exam consists of 60 multiple-choice questions that cover eight cornerstones of supply chain management: supply chain concepts, demand and supply integration, supply management and procurement, manufacturing and service operations, transportation, inventory management, warehousing, and order fulfillment and customer service.
