1. England
2. Colombia
3. Ecuador

Though we have many purchasers from England enrolled in the Senior Professional in Supply Management® Program, it has taken our friends from across the pond a little longer to get through the program and earn their SPSM’s. Of course, the program is a self-paced one, so purchasing professionals are welcome to complete the requirements as quickly or as deliberately as they would like.

One item of note: I only started posting these updates recently. So you won’t be able to find all countries where their are SPSM-certified purchasers on this blog. I’m saving that for a big milestone we have coming up…
