Learn to master your supply chain by enrolling in the Supply Chain Management Association's Supply Chain Management Professional (SCMP) Designation Program. The program’s modules and interactive workshops will help you to increase the profitability and productivity of your supply chain. Participants have the option of either enrolling in the SCMP Designation Program, which leads to the widely respected SCMP Designation or registering for a single module or interactive workshop.

Modules and interactive workshops are scheduled throughout the year from September to June. Modules are either 13 or 7 weeks in length. Modules are only offered at present in a self-study correspondence format in Nova Scotia. Interactive workshops are in-class, facilitator-led and typically held on a Thursday-Friday (2-day) or Thursday-Friday-Saturday (3-day).

  • The Supply Chain Management Professional (SCMP) Designation Program is offered in a combination of classroom and correspondence formats. Program intake is throughout the year; however, the start of the program varies depending on course availability.
  • Instructor-led (classroom) format: Interactive workshops are taught in an in-class, instructor-led format. Specific dates will be provided for each semester as they become available. We are unable to guarantee specific weekdays in advance. Interactive workshops are typically held on a Thursday-Friday (2 day) or Wednesday-Thursday-Friday (3 day). Due to their nature, interactive workshops are only available in-class.
