Pay-As-You-Go Certification Plan
Earn your SPSM ® Certification on a payment plan
The Pay-As-You-Go Certification Plan allows you to enroll in any class individually and decide later if you wish to use it towards SPSM® Certification! Depending on how you wish to spread out your payments, you can take just one class, take a few, or take them all. It's up to you! There is no obligation to pursue your supply chain certification. If you complete all six classes that are part of the Senior Professional in Supply Management® Program, you will have the option of taking the SPSM® Exam and applying for SPSM® Certification.
Here are the steps and current costs associated with earning your SPSM® Certification via the Pay-As-You-Go Certification Plan. Note that these costs are subject to change without notice. And, just to be clear, it is more expensive to pay for these supply chain certification components separately than it is to pay for enrollment in the SPSM® Certification Program, which includes each of these components.

- When you successfully complete each online class, you receive a Certificate of Completion. Each Certificate notes the date that you completed the applicable class. Copies of these Certificates must be included when you submit your application. For a Certificate of Completion to be valid towards SPSM® Certification, the completion date on the certificate may not be more than five years earlier than the date on which your application was postmarked.
- Cost of classes, the SPSM® Exam, and the application fee are subject to change without notice. The only way to have complete certainty over your supply chain certification costs is to fully enroll in the Senior Professional in Supply Management® Program, which features an all-inclusive price.
- Taking the classes in the order described is strongly recommended, but not required. The order of the classes represents a logical progression from the most basic material to the most advanced.
