Why the Chartered Supply Chain Professional Designation

As a Supply Chain (SC) professional, you are a leader in your field. Employers, colleagues and clients turn to you for strategic advice, clear guidance, and leadership on all aspects of SC. Make the most of your SC knowledge and experience, and get started on the path towards the Chartered Professional in Supply Chain (CPSC™) designation – the gold standard of SC professionals.

New York Professional Institute is the designated certifying body for Chartered Professional  in the United States for the nationally and Internationally  recognized Chartered Professional in Supply Chain (CPSC™) designation.

The CPSC designation, pronounced C-P-S-C (each letter is said individually), represents a commitment to an International standard of excellence and sets a benchmark for the practice of effective Supply Chain. It emphasizes the strategic role of SC management in business and plays an important role in securing SC’s position as an equal business partner at the senior management table.

The CPSC™ designation signifies that an individual has achieved and continues to actively demonstrate mastery of the SC body of knowledge. Through a national examination and assessment process, each CPSC designate must demonstrate the core competencies relevant to the SC profession. Certification is an essential tool for maintaining high performance standards. The designation assures employers, clients and other SC professionals that a CPSC has committed to abiding by a professional code of ethics, a breach of which will result in disciplinary action including the possible removal of the designation.

CPSCs are required to report a minimum of 100 hours of professional development activity every three years on a cumulative basis and a minimum of 20 hours each year. Continuing Professional Development (CPD) signifies continued mastery of the CPSC Competency Framework, which outlines 44 discipline specific professional competencies.

The CPSC designation can enhance your career opportunities and compensation potential. An increasing number of organizations require or prefer that successful candidates for SC positions hold, or are working towards obtaining, the CPSC designation. This is particularly true for senior SC positions.

The CPSC designation is recognized by all CPSC Member Associations and can be transferred between these same Member Associations.
