SCOR Scholar (SCOR-S) Certification
The SCOR Scholar (SCOR-S) certification introduces the SCOR model to students who are pursuing supply chain management careers. The program will help bring university graduates to the workforce with knowledge of the SCOR framework and the enhanced ability to recognize supply chain processes and measure their performance. SCOR-S will launch in the 2010-2011 academic year.
Unlike the SCOR Professional certification program, no prior work experience in supply chain management is required or assumed. However, candidates do need to be enrolled in a supply chain degree program at a university that has enrolled to participate in the certification program.
The SCOR-S certification process consists of a two-day lecture, delivered by a qualified SCC instructor, followed by a proctored exam. Upon passing the exam the student receives a SCOR-S certificate and can use the SCOR-S credential on resumes, social media profiles and job applications.
SCOR-S certification will be offered through the supply chain management programs of SCC member universities. Because many academic representatives have indicated their interest in offering SCOR-S certification, SCC has set up a process to select a manageable number of initial participants. An on-boarding committee will review all applications from eligible universities and approve and prioritize applications based on SCC capacity. University characteristics that the review committee will look for include:

Supply Chain Council will not actively integrate the SCOR-S content into a university’s curriculum. Teaching staff at universities that offer SCOR-S certification are encouraged to integrate SCOR knowledge throughout their courses. SCC piloted the SCOR Scholar program at Clemson University (Clemson, SC). SCOR-S certification training is currently being offered there during the spring semester as an integral part of the undergraduate supply chain management coursework.
The SCOR-S certification path includes the following steps:
Supply Chain Council provides the instruction materials required (slides, SCOR reference and quick reference guides); the university provides the venue and audio visual equipment for the two-day lecture. The exam must be administered at a qualified testing center by proctors, both provided by the university. Supply Chain Council provides the examination materials.
