The APICS® Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP®) program develops strong supply chain leaders capable of creating and executing supply chain strategies that meet customer needs, reduce costs, and increase profits.
The APICS® CSCP® designation increases your value among employers who know that a well-run supply chain is a key component of a forward-looking and competitive enterprise.
The CSCP® takes a broad view of the field, extending beyond internal operations to encompass the entire supply chain—from the supplier, through the company, to the end consumer. The program provides professionals with the skill set necessary to understand and manage the integration and coordination of activities within today’s increasingly intricate supply chains.
This is an instructor-led comprehensive professional development and exam preparation program based on the current APICS® CSCP® Exam Content Manual. This comprehensive training program combines print materials with interactive web-based study tools to provide a customized learning experience. The program is taught by Penn State-approved and APICS® certified instructors. This course is being offered in collaboration with other campuses of Penn State thru video links, Zoom, and online platforms.
