A prospective SPSM student emailed me today asking if he could earn the SPSM Certification “even” if he is in Mexico.

Well, of course the SPSM Certification Program is available around the world and is being pursued by purchasing professionals from over 50 countries. But I dug up one statistic for him that I found interesting:

Mexico has the second most SPSM’s of any country – 16% in fact. That’s less than the USA, but slightly (and surprisingly) more than 4th place Canada. Another surprise is that 3rd place Qatar (where the SPSM is on fire!) is also slightly outpacing Canada!

Maybe after the Stanley Cup Finals (which is featuring an appearance by a Canadian team) are over, we’ll see a deluge of SPSM’s from Canada. There’s no shortage of canucks enrolled in the SPSM Certification Program, but maybe they are spending more time rooting on the Ottawa Senators than learning purchasing best practices right now!
