Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

Stay Informed. Sharpen Your Skills.

We are experiencing a period of rapid transformation.  Commercial & contract management, supply chain ecosystems, procurement and legal teams are re-thinking and re-designing to create and demonstrate value for their organizations.  Individuals and teams are moving beyond the status quo.

World Commerce & Contracting’s Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities and resources will keep you informed of latest trends and sharpen your skills and competencies to advance your own development and bring value to your team and organization.

A Wealth of Resources & Where to Find Them!

As a WorldCC member, you can tap into a rich, diverse set of resources, presented in a variety of formats that best accommodate your professional needs and desired learning format. Here is a quick reference guide to our most popular resources.

Support the CCM community and earn CPD

CPD is not only about attending events and reading articles - you can also get involved in activities such as:

  • Writing an article for Contracting Excellence Journal or JSCAN
  • Offering or receiving professional mentoring
  • Joining WorldCC’s Advisory Council or leading a networking group
  • Speaking at a conference or event

It is also possible to record CPD points for participation in events or trainings provided by your organization or an otherwise related engagement. 

Why not participate in a one-hour team lunch-n-learn, or write an article for the company newsletter? Make sure you record it in your WorldCC personalized Learning Tracker located in your member profile.  As a general rule, one CPD point can be recorded for one hour of engagement.

CPD and Certification Renewal

Our certification programs are key to demonstrating best-in-class competency and qualification. Members who are certified in Contract and Commercial Management (CCM) or Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) must earn CPD points to maintain their WorldCC certification.

At the two-year mark, your certification will automatically renew provided that you are an active paid member of WorldCC and you gained 40 points during this period (or 20 points for CCM Associate). Starting March 2022, certified learners must have at least 4 credits in Business Ethics and/or Environment, Social & Governance (ESG) to renew their certification. Make sure you record your CPD points in your WorldCC personalized Learning Tracker located in your member profile.
