Professional Registration and Membership
Professional Registration will be available during 2019. ASCI Registered Practitioners will be able to undertake a Professional Registration Exam and on successful completion, apply for ASCI Professional Membership, which will register you as a Professional Supply Chain Manager. This will allow you to use the nominals PrSCM, indicating your registration, against the ASCI Registration Standards, as an ASCI Professional Supply Chain Manager.
Professional Membership is awarded to professionals that are registered against the ASCI Professional and Practitioner Registration Scheme as a Professional Supply Chain Manager. Successful registration will allow the registrant to use the PrSCM nominals after his/her name.
Professional registration requires the potential registrant to comply with the following requirements:
- Evidence of having current registration as an ASCI Registered Practitioner
- Evidence of having practised in the workplace for at least six (6) months in a capacity relevant to the Practitioner Registration held.
- A Certificate of Currency for Professional Indemnity Insurance held up to the amount as required by ASCI, at the time of registration.
Professional Registration Examination
The Professional Registration Examination will consist of four parts:
PART 1: Supply Chain Management
PART 2: Operations Management
PART 3: Logistics Management
PART 4: Procurement/Supply Management
The exam will be based on the ASCI Body of Knowledge, which implies that the questions will test the candidate’s knowledge and understanding of the concepts as set out and defined in the ASCI Body of Knowledge.
It will be supported by a list of relevant reference materials which will represent the knowledge required to sit the exam.
More detail will be released in early 2019.
