SPSM2 ® Certification

Demonstrate that you are among the best in the purchasing field

The world of purchasing and supply management is constantly changing and growing. The standards for the performance excellence of purchasing professionals like you are continually being raised. Accomplishments that are considered advanced one year are usually considered common practice years later and even outdated years after that. As a result, there are purchasing professionals that are regarded as top talent and then there is everyone else.

But the good news is you have the opportunity to become one of the best in the purchasing field by earning your SPSM2® Certification. Recognizing that purchasing is evolving in its responsibilities and duties, the SPSM2® Certification will allow your certification to grow with you and prepare you for new challenges you will experience in your career.

The SPSM2® is not a replacement for the original SPSM® Certification, but simply a higher level of achievement. Similar to a master's degree being a higher level compared to a bachelor's degree, the SPSM2® will be an indication of your continued dedication to advancing your career. The SPSM2® Certification builds on the skills and knowledge that you have already acquired while earning the SPSM® Certification and adds training on processes that are becoming more significant in the purchasing field- international procurement and managerial skills.

Certification In Purchasing - SPSM2 Certification For Purchasing Professionals

Susan Lemley, SPSM2 receives the first SPSM2® Certification from Next Level Purchasing President Charles Dominick, SPSM

Earning the SPSM2® Certification is a three-step process, similar to earning the original SPSM® Certification. Only currently certified SPSM's are eligible to enroll in the SPSM2® Program. Here are the three steps...

Achieving your SPSM2® also serves to recertify you as an SPSM for a 4-year period, even if your original SPSM® Certification expires earlier. Your original SPSM® Certification will become linked to your SPSM2® Certification. Recertifying for the SPSM2® automatically recertifies you for the SPSM and both will have the same expiration date.

Maintaining your place among the top talent in the profession and ensuring that you are ready for tomorrow's purchasing challenges is crucial. As an SPSM2®, you'll become one of the most elite purchasing professionals ready to handle challenges with confidence while achieving great results.
