The Certified Materials & Resource Professional (CMRP), the premier national supply chain credential, provides a personal and professional distinction in an increasingly competitive health care supply chain marketplace. This session will provide an overview of the Certified Materials & Resource Professional (CMRP) examination, helpful study tips, and a discussion of the requirements to earn the designation.

In this interactive session, presenters will discuss the CMRP exam content areas, the types of questions asked, and exam preparation insights. Participants will review concepts and example questions from each of the five exam content areas covering both recall and application questions. 

The conversation will continue through the study of the 110 example questions when learners will have the opportunity to ask detailed questions throughout the course. Instructors will continually refer to the CMRP Examination Review Guide

Important Pre-Session Work:

Registrants will complete 110 sample exam questions sent to them prior to the course. Not completing the pre-work assignment will likely cause disappointment with the session. 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Identify the “basics” of the CMRP examination, the major content areas, and cognitive levels
  • Identify content areas to consider for additional review by testing your knowledge of 110 practice questions and a live review of answers and rationale
  • Obtain tips for answering the different types of questions that will be asked in each of the examination content areas
  • Clarify your individual questions by participating in a live discussion with presenters and attendees

NOTE: This is not a study session but an in-depth review of the examination itself.
