U.S. Army Human Resources Command, Alexandria, VA.: Army approves recognition of professional logistician certification.

Effective April 15, 2004, Army officers/warrant officers in any branch/specialty who have been awarded the designation "Certified Professional Logistician" (CPL) by The International Society of Logistics (SOLE) are authorized to add their CPL certification to their Officer Record Brief (ORB) and Official Military Personnel Folder (OMPF). This change to AR 600-8-104, Military Personnel Information Management/ Records authorizes the inclusion of the CPL certificate in the OMPF. The CPL joins, among others, the Certified Professional Engineer (CPE), the Certified Professional Accountant (CPA), and the Certified Professional Contract Manager (CPCM) as civilian-granted professional certifications authorized for documentation and recognition as specialized education and training. The CPL certification will be reflected in "Section X-Remarks" on the lower left portion of the ORB. Army National Guard (ARNG) CPLs can submit their certifications now to the respective state military personnel offices. All Army/Army Reserve CPLs can submit their documentation, following one of the procedures below:

Submit a notarized copy of the SOLE CPL certificate to your assignment officer at:

FOR ACTIVE ARMY

FOR ACTIVE ARMY ONLY

Scan and e-mail a copy of the certificate to your assignment officer. Addresses can be found on the HRC Web site at <http://www.perscom.army.mil/opmd/Branch%20Homepages.htm>.

For any of the above procedures include your name and social security number on the side corner of the copy of the certificate. Include a note indicating your name and social security number and state that you want CPL certification added to your OMPF. Your assignment officer will update your ORB and forward the certificate for inclusion in PERMS--the Army's Personnel Electronic Records Management System.
