Do you wish to pursue the SCMP designation? If you’ve completed the Supply Management Training (SMT) or, at minimum, the four core courses in the SMT offerings, you may be eligible for advanced standing and/or some module exemptions when you enroll in the SCMP program.

Module exemption will be granted for Modules 1 and 3 if you complete the three Advanced Standing and Exemption online courses.

The completion of these courses provides closure in the content gap for several key concepts between the SMT program and the SCMP program.

Pre-requisites for the SCMP designation program remain in effect.
