The CPOE (Certified Procurement Operations Executive) Certification Program is Level 4 of the Certified Procurement Operations Body of Knowledge (CPO-BOK) and covers executive procurement leadership skills. The CPOE (Certified Procurement Operations Executive) certification is not a replacement for the CPOS (Certified Procurement Operations Specialist), CPOP (Certified Procurement Operations Professional) or CPOM (Certified Procurement Operations Manager) Certifications, but simply a higher level of achievement. The CPOE Certification builds on the skills and knowledge that you have already acquired while earning the CPOS, CPOP and CPOM Certifications and adds training to master the skills of leadership for even better results and a greater bottom-line impact. 

The path to obtaining the CPOE (Certified Procurement Operations Executive) Certification involves completing the Level 4 online procurement courses and passing the CPOE exam. The CPOE exam is included with your registration.
