"Many of my projects would have been much more difficult without APICS – especially, when different ERP systems and planning tools are being used across an organization, a consistent terminology is the key for success. And for me, that has been APICS."

  • APICS CSCP (Certified Supply Chain Professional): with this certification you will understand the complete supply chain network with all processes and concepts.
  • APICS CLTD (Certified in Logistics, Transportation and Distribution): The designation provides relevant knowledge and tools that will help to ensure continuous flow of material and to manage today’s supply chain logistics challenges.

A relationship between the CPIM and the CSCP exists. Depending on job experience and previous knowledge many of the subjects are taught in different contexts and at varying depths to conform to the certification level.

The following illustration shows the dependency between CPIM and CSCP.

Some topics are in common, but are covered in different level of detail and focus due to the different target groups and their professional experience.
