UT Approved to Provide Continuing Education Credit for Top Supply Chain Group
The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, is the first and only institution approved by the top professional supply chain management and logistics organization to provide continuing education credits for its members.
The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) recently endorsed UT to offer credits through its Approved Continuing Education Provider (ACEP) program. ACEP is designed to be a registry of continuing education providers who have been approved by CSCMP based on its delivery of high-quality programs and courses to supply chain management and logistics professionals.
Individuals who have received their CSCMP ProTM certification will be able to attend UT's supply chain management courses to earn the minimum 60 hours of continuing education hour credits needed to maintain certification. A three-day course at UT fulfills 18 to 20 hours, depending on the course.
Participants in the UT courses also can earn their UT Supply Chain Management Certification.
“We are excited to be partnering with The University of Tennessee,” said Kathleen Hedland, CSCMP director of education and research. “Now those who have received their SCPro certifications will have the opportunity to earn continuing education units (CEUs) at this world-class institution. Our CEUs are only given for solid supply chain educational content, and UT meets those needs and more.”
"We are honored to be a collaborating partner with the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals in the pursuit of advanced supply chain education," said Ted Stank, Bruce Chair of Excellence in UT's Department of Marketing and Supply Chain Management and 2014 incoming CSCMP chair. "Our internationally renowned faculty and supply chain programming allow us to empower executives to move their organizations forward."
When Stank becomes CSCMP board chair in 2014, UT will become the only university to have had three CSCMP board chairs.
UT was the first university to offer supply chain management certification and is the only university globally that offers programs in Vested Outsourcing and Performance-Based Logistics. UT's supply chain faculty is ranked No.1 globally for research productivity.
CSCMP members qualify for special UT course pricing.
