Scope:  From manufacturers to service providers, regardless of whether a firm’s clients are businesses or consumers, for-profit or not, supply chain management (SCM) impacts all organizations.  Customers already demand high quality and low prices.  In today’s global markets, user convenience, delivery speed, and promise date reliability are becoming increasingly important from a value perspective.  As a result, flawless deployment has become essential to competing successfully in a global marketplace.

CSCP takes a broad view of SCM, extending beyond internal operations to encompass all the links throughout a value chain network—from supplier to end consumer—and how to effectively integrate, manage, and innovate these activities to optimize supply chain performance.  Web tools with an online dictionary, e-flashcards, practice questions, pre- and post-tests are included with each Participant Learning System.

Who Should Attend?  Operations professionals holding a bachelor’s degree, an APICS or ISM certification, or with five years of business experience qualify to sit for the CSCP certification Exam.  CSCP’s designation is ideal for professionals employed by retailers, distributors, government or manufacturers--or for service providers within the logistics, customshouse brokerage, international trade or financing, ERP, consulting, or teaching sectors.  

Cost:  Registration fee of $3115 member includes tuition, exam fee plus the following materials:

  • 2018 CSCP Participant Learning System (1200+ pages)
  • 2018 CSCP Slide Deck
  • CSCP Exam Credit (valid for six months)
  • Access to online learning suite

Curriculum:  Classes are highly interactive with a combination of reading assignments, group discussions, resource handouts, team exercises, hands-on worksheets, videos, web clips and case studies.  44 classroom hours will be devoted to each of the three CSCP Modules:

     1.  Supply Chain Design (2 spiral-bound books)                                                                                      

     2.  Supply Chain Planning & Execution (2 spiral-bound books)
