ISM expanded the eligibility requirements for the Certified Professional in Supply Management® (CPSM®) certification to include a pathway for individuals who do not have a qualified degree. Qualified professionals without a degree who meet a higher threshold of applicable years of work experience may now obtain the CPSM® credential.

New CPSM® requirements are:

  • Three years of full-time, professional supply management experience with a regionally accredited bachelor’s degree or international equivalent


  • Five years of full-time, professional supply management experience without a qualified degree


  • Pass three CPSM® Exams, or one Bridge Exam for current C.P.M.s

Additionally, individuals who hold an active Certified Purchasing Manager (C.P.M.) certification, regardless of their degree status, may now explore the path to achieve the CPSM® as long as they can demonstrate the required years of applicable work experience.
