Frequently Asked Questions about the SCOR-S Certification Program
Universities and business schools with an established supply chain management program can participate. The program will launch in Canada and the United States for the academic year 2010/2011, followed by pilots in Singapore, South Africa, and Australia/New Zealand in early 2011. Countries with language requirements will follow in 2012.
The SCOR-S certification program is aimed at, but not limited to, undergraduate programs with a strong focus on supply chain management. University programs interested in offering SCOR-S certification will need to provide details on the extent of their supply chain program. The university supply chain curriculum should cover all SCOR® processes: Plan, Source, Make, Deliver and Return.
Faculty: The enrollment and on-boarding process is documented on our University enrollment process overview page.
Students: Please note: you cannot enroll your university. Contact your professor or university administration and express your interest in the SCOR-S certification program. The University enrollment process overview page provides most of the information your university needs to start the decision making process.
Yes. The cost is US$ 300 per student. SCC will not collect these fees from the students as the SCOR-S program agreement is between SCC and the university. The university will receive one invoice for the number of students listed in the agreement. An example of the agreement can be found on the University enrollment process overview page.
Under no circumstance will SCC invoice or collect funds from students. SCC will facilitate the student registration process on behalf of the university.
Yes, Supply Chain Council will provide a SCC qualified instructor. The cost of the instructor is included in the program. Universities with faculty that have been qualified by SCC receive a US$ 2500 discount for each lecture for which SCC does not need to provide the instructor.
A list of universities will be posted on our website. Please check the student registration page for an up-to-date university and program listing. If your university is not offering SCOR-S certification, contact your faculty and express your interest in participation.
Around the world there are many different education systems, languages and local requirements. To ensure SCC can properly respond to these local needs the roll out of SCOR-S certification is in three waves. 1. Canada and the United States, 2. native English speaking chapters, and 3. other languages.
In 2009/2010 we developed the standard processes and relationships to be able to offer the program in the United States and Canada. The process was piloted in two universities: Clemson University in Clemson, SC and Miami University in Oxford, OH. (~150 students). Starting the 2010/2011 academic year 10 universities per semester will be added to the program.
Starting early 2011 pilots will be organized in several native English speaking chapters where we have sufficient academic presence. Chapter leadership teams will be involved in enlisting universities for the pilots. The pilots will help us identify where we need to adapt the program to local or regional needs. In 2011/2012 university programs with English spoken programs may join the program.
The final wave focuses on local language needs. In countries were English is not the language in education and/or business SCC will assess how to train and qualify instructors, translate the materials and how to test candidates.
There are several reasons why we offer this program through universities only:
Universities have asked us for a program that allows them to include SCOR in their supply chain programs. The SCOR certification program is the response from SCC to this request. SCOR-S certification should be included as part of a larger curriculum; universities have the ability to offer this, SCC cannot.
