CSCP candidates and corporations around the world have trusted the APICS Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP) Learning System to gain the knowledge and skills to improve their supply chain performance and help them pass the CSCP exam.
“APICS offers a distinguished certification that teaches our employees to identify continuous improvement opportunities within our customers’ supply chains and bring forth new, innovative solutions to address challenges they are encountering.
We budgeted to support the training and the [Certified Supply Chain Professional] (CSCP) program the following year, [and] we now have over 125 employees certified and plan to certify 20 or more people every year.”
“I found that my military experience in supply chain, production, and logistics was very similar to concepts in civilian industry. However, I also found that the language and terminology was significantly different. APICS CSCP helped me learn how to better communicate my skills to future employers during the resume building and interviewing process — and eventually on-the-job.”
Discusses her certification experience.
“Within a year of earning my CSCP, I’ve gotten a new job with active involvement in a truly global supply chain for a company with worldwide recognition in the aerospace industry. I’ll be traveling to France to meet with other supply chain professionals at my company’s central supply node. Members of my chapter are encouraging me to get more involved on the board of my APICS chapter and I’m looking forward to the unfolding journey that lies ahead. Overall, I’m so much happier at work and at home.”
“Participation in the APICS CSCP program also has created a community of knowledge at MillerCoors. Stacy Duda, CSCP, sales and operations planning manager, says she and her colleagues are rallying around the new philosophy. ‘APICS provides endless opportunities to tap into a wealth of external knowledge,’ she explains. ‘Employees who have gone through the training are genuinely excited to discuss and apply the learnings with others.’ ”
“Using APICS principles like ‘Design for Logistics’ that I learned as part of the earning the CSCP, we captured key data on our extended databases process for Racks & Containers design/build which helped minimize transportation and storage costs by 15%, saving $2.3M to our bottom line.”
“The APICS CSCP has helped me gain a better understanding of my supply chain and provided ideas of how to improve it. I’m working on mapping to remove unnecessary steps. The CSCP is a great program for all supply chain managers.”
“I would definitely encourage others to take the APICS CSCP courses in order to develop and enhance their skills, to create and execute a global supply chain management strategy that meets customer needs, to reduce cost, and to increase profits. The knowledge is yours. Use it, share it.”
”APICS CSCP is the premier certification for end-to-end supply chain management. For Intel, it has provided a foundation for critical thinking and objectivity along with a proven framework for addressing business opportunities and challenges. It has also helped align Intel’s supply chain vocabulary with industry standards.”
