Certified Professional Contracts Manager (CPCM)

CPCM Certification

A certified professional contracts manager (CPCM) shows that you are knowledgeable about all facets of contracts management, both within the government and the commercial arenas. To earn the CPCM, a candidate must take and pass the Certified Professional Contracts Manager module exam.

Certification is a mark of distinction. It sets the credentialed individual and his/her workplace apart from others in the same profession. A certified individual communicates that he or she has attained a certain level of expertise and is committed to maintaining the highest level of professionalism.

NCMA’s certification program, in particular, sharpens candidates’ focus. Certification provides a direct link between the individual in the workplace and the rest of the professional community. This link provides support, guidance, and opportunity.

Certification increases and enhances competition in the labor market. Employers also enjoy a level of assurance with respect to a certified individual’s knowledge, application of that knowledge, and continued professional development.
