Certification is the mark of a dedicated professional, and CAPPO encourages all members to achieve purchasing certification. Certification is a personal and professional investment of tremendous value to the buyer and their employer. CAPPO's educational programs help members work toward the most widely recognized professional certification programs available.



CAPPO has a long history of supporting and encouraging members to obtain certification in the purchasing field. To further entice our members to achieve this valuable goal, CAPPO has instituted a Certification Incentive Program. For each recognized certification a member achieves, they may receive $100. The certification must have been obtained no more than six months prior to submitting the application and a copy of the certificate must accompany the application.  Application

The Universal Public Purchasing Certification Council (UPPCC) Examinations measure professional competence and the understanding of the body of knowledge surrounding public procurement. Certified individuals are issued a certificate attesting that they have met the standards of the credentialing organization and are entitled to make the public aware of their credentialed status, through the use of initials after their name and in all forms of address. The UPPCC offers the CPPB and CPPO designations. Obtaining a Certified Professional Buyer (CPPB) or Certified Public Purchasing Officer (CPPO) designation demonstrates a standard of competency in the public.

The CPSM® is the credential that surpasses the demands of the international marketplace with multi-faceted skills in areas such as supplier relationship management, commodity management, risk and compliance issues and social responsibility. ISM launched the Certified Professional in Supply Management® (CPSM®) program in May 2008.
