Recent alumni and current students of the Durham College (DC) Materials and Operations Management – Business Administration program (formerly Business Administration – Operations Management; now Supply Chain and Operations Management – Business Administration) are being offered advanced standing towards the Certified Supply Chain Management Professional (SCMP) designation thanks to a new agreement between DC and the Supply Chain Management Association of Ontario (SCMAO). Signed in May, the agreement makes the path to Certified SCMP status more efficient for graduates and offers another level of certification to complement their diploma.
Advanced standing will be given to alumni of DC’s three-year program who graduated between 2013 and 2017 and who have obtained a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0. Some SCMAO modules and workshops have been exempted from this advanced standing, including Module 2, 3, 4, and 6; and Interactive Workshop 1 and 3.
The Certified SCMP designation is an internationally accredited certification of strategic supply chain leadership and is Canada’s most widely held and highly regarded designation in supply chain management. To achieve advanced standing for grads, DC worked with the SCMAO to assess the curriculum for each program component to determine its alignment with the SCMAO modules and workshops.
Future graduates of DC’s Supply Chain and Operations Management programs will also have the opportunity to receive advanced prior learning recognition towards the Certified SCMP as part of the program.
For more information on this opportunity, please contact Jennifer Souch, program coordinator, Supply Chain and Operations Management – Business Administration at 905.721.2000 ext. 2279.
