In-Residence Week for SCMP Designation Candidates image

Approximately 200 SCMP Designation Candidates™ from across Canada will attend the 2019 In-Residence Week (IRW), being held on Sunday, May 5 to Wednesday, May 8, 2019, at the University of Calgary.

IRW is an intensive week that allows SCMP candidates to synthesize, apply and test their knowledge and skills gained throughout the SCMP Designation Program™, and help prepare them for the final exam. It is the capstone to the program, with participants examining issues at the highest strategic level in supply chain management.

In-Residence Week presents a varied schedule that includes: case studies, group work, informative lectures, intensive Final Examination preparation.

It is each person’s responsibility to ensure they have completed or will complete all the necessary requirements, by the end of April 2019, to participate in In-Residence Week 2019 before registering for the event. This includes all 8 modules and 6 workshops.

Attendance and participation at every session during the IRW is required.  Each missed session will result in a deduction of 1 percent from a candidate's overall grade. Candidates who miss more than four sessions will receive a failing grade.
