International Purchasing Management Certifications

Students desiring these certifications may substitute the word "Procurement" for "Purchasing"

Certified International Purchasing/Procurement  Professional (CIPP, Level 1)
Certified International Purchasing/Procurement  Manager (CIPM, Level 2)
Certified International Purchasing/Procurement  Consultant
(CIPC, Level 3)

The above three IPSCMI International Purchasing Management certifications provide a complete “certification life cycle” for purchasing professionals, particularly for those involved in global/international purchasing and sourcing.

Unlike many other certification-granting organizations, IPSCMI does not require its candidates to progress through all levels of certification. Senior, experienced professionals with significant education, training, and experience can apply directly for Consultant level certification without the necessity of completing the two lower level certifications.
