Maintenance requirements are an essential component of SCMAO’s CSCMP Designation framework and continuing professional development (CPD) is an important part of the requirements. By staying up-to-date with the latest knowledge and skills, CSCMP Designation holders remain at the leading edge of the profession, demonstrate a commitment to continued learning, and are constantly adding value within their organizations.
Earn 30 continuing professional development (CPD) maintenance credits over successive 3-year maintenance periods (Retired, non-practicing CSCMP Designation holders shall be exempt from the maintenance credits requirements).
CSCMP Designation holders are strongly encouraged to design an annual personal professional development plan to ensure that CPD is a manageable and professionally enriching experience. Maintenance credits may be completed through SCMAO offerings, learning institutions, other professional organizations (CPA, HRPA, CPHR, CSAE, ICD, etc.), and/or employers.
