Recognition of Prior Learning Application for the SCMP Designation Program


Supply Chain Canada’s National Office is responsible for the evaluation and administration of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) applications.  Following review of your RPL Application, provincial and territorial institutes will be responsible for assessing your entry requirements and enrolling candidates into the SCMP Designation Program.

SCMPTM designation candidates may qualify for credit exemptions against the coursework requirements of the SCMP Designation Program.  Candidates should note that:

  • There are no exemptions for the SCMP Leadership Residency or SCMP National Exam.
  • Exemptions for Module 1 are only granted where this exemption is part of an accreditation agreement with an academic institution.  Or where the applicant can demonstrate significant understanding of case work (a capstone project or thesis, etc.)  Module 1 sets the foundation for case work throughout the program and is essential to an SCMP candidate's success during the coursework and on the final case-based SCMP National Exam.

Applicants will be assessed on an individual basis upon submission of an application, the applicable fees and supporting documents that should be submitted directly to advancedstanding@supplychaincanada.com.  The below details the kinds of documentation that an applicant might consider submitting as part of their application package.  If you have any questions, please reach out to your provincial or territorial institute for clarification. 

Academic Programs: Applicants from one of our recognized post-secondary institutions will be required to submit an official transcript as proof of completion of an academic program and confirmation of grades.  Applicants should note that academic credentials must have been acquired within the past five year.  Applicants seeking credit exemptions must have achieved at least a 70% grade (or equivalent) in the relevant courses to meet the standand for transferability.  View list of accreditation partners.

For those applicants presenting prior learning from a recognized Canadian or international post-secondary institution that is not covered within the scope of these agreements, they will be required to submit course descriptions for academic programs for which they are seeking assessment.

To be considered for credit exemptions for academic learning, transcripts must indicate completion of the program within the past five (5) years.

Other Professional Associations: Along with academic programs, Supply Chain Canada has entered into accreditation agreements with other professional associations.  View list of accredited associations.  Applicants presenting prior learning from another professional association will be required to submit more detailed documentation.

Canadian Armed Forces Training & Service: Supply Chain Canada recognizes that our Canadian soldiers receive world-class education and training during their military careers and are highly skilled in supply chain areas.  Supply Chain Canada and the Canadian Armed Forces signed an agreement that provides CAF Officers who have completed Supply Officer training with advanced standing toward the SCMP designation.  View list of recognized credit exemptions.  SCMP coursework exemptions are also available for other military service and training, but may require additional documentation.  Military personnel and veterans should submit their Military Personnel Resume Record (MPRR) or Unit Employment Record (EUR) for assessment.

Other Learning & Work Experience: Through the RPL process, Supply Chain Canada can also assess other learning and training programs, including corporate in-house training, as well as learning gained through work experience or other noon-traditional forms of learning.  Those applicants applying for recognition of work experience must provide validation of roles, responsibilities and transferable skills.  Supporting documentation might include a detailed resume with employment history, job descriptions, employer letters validating employment and responsibilities.
