CISCM Ghana on Wa Poly Campus Mr Iddrisu Mohammed Ngmenupuo – Rector, Dr Hilla Liman Polytechnic.
The CISCM team was represented by Mr Sylvanus Gatorwu, the Head of Communications Corporate Affairs and Mr Graham Billa the Coordinator of the Northern Belt.
The Rector took time to educate students who had gathered about the advantages of having professional education in addition to their academic laurels.
Mr Ngmenipuo, himself a member of a number of professional bodies said, “In practice, those who are called Accountants are the professionals, the Supply Chain Professional is not the one who has had professional training”
He did not miss words in saying “This is something I have been waiting to happen in this institution”
He was impressed by the fact that the Institute certifies each level “I like the certification of each level because it is different from all others who only give you a slip, and only gives you a certificate after completing all levels”
“Just as you can’t call yourself a lawyer if you don’t get called to the Bar, you need to join a professional body and stay relevant to be called a professional” he added.
Mr Ngmenipuo encouraged the students that the job market may be chocked, but those who have a professional education in addition to their academic qualifications will always have a place.
He urged the Institute to as part of the collaboration provide industrial attachment for potential student members who would enrol in the CISCM.
Mr Gatorwu presented to the participants what the CISCM stood for, while Mr Graham took time to answer the numerous questions that the students asked.
Students expressed interest by picking up forms after the program.
