The CSCP is a high-level, yet thorough look into end-to-end supply chain management.  Described by some students and instructors as being a “mini-MBA,” the CSCP reinforces and expands upon the foundation of the Operations Management Body of Knowledge (OMBOK) presented in the CPIM course material.  While it is not necessary to have completed the CPIM courses or earned your CPIM designation prior to taking this course, having done so will help you to immediately dive into the CSCP material, and prepare you for success in passing the CSCP exam.  There is no pre-requisite for taking the CSCP Exam Prep Course, however, before you can be approved to take the CSCP exam, you must apply through www.apics.org, and have at least 2 years of professional work experience.

 APICS CSCP education is essential if you are:

  • Interested in increasing your knowledge and expertise in the field of global supply chain management, specifically in the areas of customer relations, international trade, information technology enablement, and physical logistics
  • Consulting or facilitating supply chain functions or working with ERP systems
  • Creating a common standard of understanding, vocabulary, resources, and frameworks within your company to address your supply chain challenges and opportunities.


 An APICS CSCP designation will help you:

  • Master the necessary tools to effectively manage global supply chain activities, including suppliers, plans, distributors, and customers around the globe
  • Acquire the skills you need to create consistency and foster collaboration through best practices, common terminology, and corporate communication
  • Understand how to use enterprise resources planning (ERP) systems and other technologies to improve the entire supply chain process
  • Maximize your organization's ERP investments by millions of dollars
  • Increase your professional value and secure your future.


This course will be held one night per week, for 3 hours each session, for a total of 14 weeks (schedule subject to change, dependent upon the instructor for the class).
