Production Management is regulated in Nigeria by the Nigerian Institute of Production Management(NIPM).

NIPM Certifications and Membership are mandatory for all Operations Managers, Manufacturing/Plant Managers and Production Managers and other Operations Specialists.

Corporate Membership of Manufacturing Organisations are also mandatory with specific requirements for eligibility.

Employers, CEOs and HR Directors expect their Manufacturing Plants to be run by professionally qualified and competent Production Managers. This comes with standards of professional learning and development.

Membership and Certifications of NIPM are proofs of professional education, training, proficiency, ethical behaviours, and integrity.

Practicing Production Management in any organisation without NIPM Certifications and Membership is quackery and a limitation to knowledge, exposure to industry and global best practices, competence, and performance.

No organisation can perform at its best with Managers and Executives who are nonchalant about self development, professionalism and ethics.

Production Managers and intending Production Managers need to be registered with the Nigerian Institute of Production Management – NIPM in line with the extant laws and as it is done in other dignified professions in the country and other parts of the world.

Get the CPM, ANIPM if you have below 6 years working experience as a Production Manager in a reputable organisation and get the CPMP, MNIPM qualifications if are in Senior Management or Executive position that reports directly to the Board or General Management with up to 10 years (and above) Production Management experience. Experience in other Operations Management fields such as Quality Control/Quality Assurance, Health & Safety/ HSE, Engineering Services/ Maintenance, R& D, Project Management, Purchasing, Stores/ Warehousing, Shipping, Import/Export, Distribution, Materials Management etc. will be considered as relevant.

Professional Production And Operations Management including Manufacturing Management, Plant Management, Logistics, Purchasing/Procurement, and Supply Chain Operations Management, and other activities to which Operations Management is applied come under the regulatory authority of the Nigerian Institute of Production Management (NIPM).
