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.

Certification renewal is required every two years from the date of certification. To be eligible to renew, you must be an active WorldCC paid member and have completed the equivalent of 40 hours of CPD over the prior two-year period at the Practitioner, Advanced Practitioner and Expert level. Members certified at the CCM Associate level (Fundamentals) are required to obtain 20 points over the two-year period. Make sure you record CPDs in your WorldCC personalized Learning Tracker located in your member profile.

Starting in March 2022, certified learners must have at least four CPD points in Business Ethics and/or Environment, Social & Governance (ESG) to renew their certification. These 4 credits are part of the 40 credits that must be obtained to renew (not in addition to).
