Recommendation on a Certificate on Procurement
I´m currently looking for a certificate on Procurement that is relevant to organisations when looking for a Procurement Specialist that has both experience and accreditation. Do you have any recommendation?
I found the CIPS Level 4 diploma Procurement & Supply interesting
Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS). The Institute now has representation in the US in addition to many other global marketplaces. As a member since 1995 I would highly recommend their education program along with the additional benefits that CIPS offer.
I hear CIPS is good. I am a CPM through the Institute for Supply Management and I am happy I have it. It is my understanding they are similar certificates. CPSM is good too, but is more geared towards direct purchasing. I am indirect.
Great, thank you all for the recommendations. I’m located in Barcelona, Spain and found an online course called ICS Learn to prepare for the CIPS Level 4 Diploma in Procurement and Supply
Hi, Sonia - also depends on where you are based out of. In the US, I'd say ISM's CPSM (Certified Professional of Supply Management) certification carries more weight. Whereas, in Europe definitely CIPS is better regarded. Other associations are APICS and CSCMP.
