Certification is crucial towards becoming a world‐class purchasing professional. Today’s employers refuse to reward employees for yesterday’s skills

They demand that purchasing professionals should use most modern skills and achieve unprecedented results. They want purchasing professionals to save more money, achieve better operational performance, and reduce risk.

The CPP and CPPM are impressive purchasing certifications that validate your stand as a successful professional. It is just what you need to bring the most modern purchasing practices into your organization and achieve your career potential.

Professionalism ‐ Certification indicates a high level of professionalism to both coworkers and customers, increasing one’s value in the market place.

Leadership ‐ Certification signifies an employee as dedicated to continuous improvement of himself/herself.

Recognition ‐ Only a small fraction of professionals ever achieve certification, indicating that they are a leading professional in the purchasing and supply chain profession.

Knowledge ‐ Certification will improve one’s understanding of the most current processes and trends in the purchasing and supply chain profession.

Ethical Behavior ‐ Individuals who become certified must subscribe to a rigorous code of ethics appropriate to the purchasing profession.

Does Certification Impact Salary Levels?

Research data has shown that employers typically reward certified employees with salaries that are 40 to 50% higher than those who are not certified. A high correlation between certification and salary exists for virtually all professions and all industries sampled.
