December 31, 2008 was the final day for individuals to register for the C.P.M. certification exams. This means that if you were hoping to earn the C.P.M. certification but didn’t register for the exam by now, you will never have the opportunity to earn that certification.

But while ISM (the creators of the C.P.M. certification) appears content to turn aspiring certification-holders away and to devalue the work done by the many fine people who earned the C.P.M. during the time it was most relevant, don’t fret. Next Level Purchasing will welcome you with open arms into the Senior Professional in Supply Management® Program, the path towards earning the more modern SPSM® Certification.

The SPSM® Certification has helped many purchasing professionals deliver more profitable results for their employers and have more rewarding careers. And whether you want to earn your first purchasing certification or you’re a C.P.M. who wants to have a certification that will continue to be relevant going forward, the SPSM® Certification can help you, too.
