As CIPS Level 6 is in the Long term skill shortage education requirement for procurement manager,I would like to clarify if I have got MCIPS status through Management entry route (MER) from CIPS UK, will it be accepted and considered equivalent to CIPS Level 6 certification as after level 6 one gets MCIPS status. Do you think NZQA will consider it as equivalent to CIP Level 6? The only difference is I took the management entry route not the study route to get MCIPS status.
