Aug '08
Paving the way for supply management professionals in Canada, Terry Volpel, CPSM, C.P.M., is the first to earn the Certified Professional in Supply Management (CPSM), a new designation designed to help prepare supply managers for broader levels of responsibility.

Institute for Supply Management (ISM) launched the CPSM during its 93rd Annual International Supply Management Conference and Educational Exhibit in May 2008.

Volpel is a member of the Canadian Institute for Supply Management (CISM). In order to earn the CPSM, Volpel had to meet all the criteria established by ISM for earning the qualification, including:

• Three years of full-time professional supply management experience (nonclerical or nonsupport);
• A clear statement from a specific country's higher learning and accrediting body concerning a degree's equivalency or a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution;
• Pass all three CPSM exams, or take the bridge exam if already a Certified Purchasing Manager (C.P.M.) in good standing.
The CPSM represents the highest degree of professional competencies, containing the most comprehensive body of knowledge, and is designed to lead the profession by emphasizing the main components of supply management.

Professionals who obtain the CPSM will have an advanced-level of broad-based skills to make better decisions regarding their organization's supply network, including how to take full advantage of opportunities around the world.
