CPSM and Bridge Classes

The CPSM Exam classes consist of three sections:  (1) Foundation of Supply Management, (2) Effective Supply Management Performance and (3) Leadership in Supply Management.  There are four classes in each section with each class three hours in length.  An exam is associated with each exam module.  These classes are designed for the individual who doesn't have a current C.P.M.  (See qualifications below.)

The Bridge class is for those whose C.P.M. is in good standing.  This class will cover the topics in the Exam classes in an abbreviated format.   There is only one exam.  NOTE:  The last day to register to take the Bridge exam test is December 21, 2014.

The Exams and Bridge Classes consists of lectures, discussion, sample tests and outside reading.  Students will need to spend several hours per week outside of class in preparation, reading and assignments.  Neither the CPSM, Bridge classes nor the textbooks are meant to cover everything in the field of supply management and content that might be covered in the exams.

It is highly recommended the student supplement his/her preparation with other study materials and major supply management textbooks.  These are available through ISM.

  • Finance for Managers
