Continuing Education

Continuing Education

Once you are granted the SCPro™ Level One Certification, you must participate in continuing education programs to maintain an active certification status. The certification cycle is three years. Your cycle begins on your anniversary date, the last day of the open testing window in which you took your test. In order to earn continuing education units (CEUs), you must be SCPro™ Level One certified.

Each year, you need to earn a minimum of 20 hours (one unit is equivalent to one hour) of professional CEUs for a minimum total of 60 hours over the three-year certification cycle. No more than 30 hours may be earned in any single year.

Documentation for Continuing Education

You are responsible for maintaining and retaining the documentation for the educational programs you attend. The application process for maintaining your certification includes submitting documentation, such as:

  • Details of the educational program
  • Proof of registration (confirmation)
  • Proof of attendance (certificate of attendance or other document showing you were in attendance throughout the course of a program)

The completed certification renewal form with the above documentation should be submitted to CSCMP along with a $50.00 US renewal fee.

CSCMP’s goal is to encourage life-long learning. Continuing education credits to maintain your certification are given for supply chain content only.  If you attend a multi-purpose event, you can only claim credit for that portion that is supply chain related.  If you are uncertain if a program qualifies or the number of credits received, please contact or call +1 630.574.0985
