Purchasing certifications and procurement certification programs offered by the American Purchasing Society are important to purchasing professionals for a number of valid reasons.

Business management recognizes the growing complexity and heavy demands of the purchasing operation. Executives need the assurance that their purchasing managers and buyers are adequately trained, reliable, and dedicated to their professions.

There is a growing realization in the business world that only professionals can get the job done in a professional manner. The American Purchasing Society award of certification provides general management a degree of confidence in the ability and integrity of the people who have been or will be selected to do the job.

Secondly, there is ample precedent reflecting the benefits of professional certification in the history of other areas of business operation, such as engineering, accounting, law, etc.

Other facts supporting the need for certification of purchasing people include a marked degree of improvement in personal confidence, satisfaction, and pride which results from certification - and it is manifested by improved performance on the part of the certified individual. Also, procurement certifications permit close control of spurious purchasing practices and offers opportunities for increased earning levels in purchasing operations based on recognition of professional competence and performance.

I have completed in 2012 both CPP and CPPM certifications. it's very add value to me I highly recommend it to everyone who really want to develop his career and for his future vision map. I recommend strongly to join these two courses which I have been gained benefit from it.
