Course Description

This accelerated learning boot camp covers 2.5 days of instructor-led facilitation and is designed to cover key learning points of the CSCP learning system. The learning system content is included in the course. 

This boot camp is an exam preparatory course for the self-study learner planning to take the APICS CSCP certification exam. The course accelerates learning by focusing on key concepts and terminology covered in the exam. This boot camp, in tandem with the reading materials and online learning courseware, provides a roadmap for those who intend to sit for the exam. Please note that this course is a great jump start to additional self-study and covers comprehensive material, but students should not rely on this course alone to pass the examination.

The APICS Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP) program takes a broad view of the field, extending beyond internal operations to encompass all the steps throughout the supply chain--from the supplier, through the company, to the end consumer--and how to effectively manage the integration of these activities to maximize the company’s value chain.
