CSCP Certified Supply Chain Professional

The "APICS Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP)" program is recognized worldwide as the premier supply chain management educational and certification program. The APICS CSCP program takes a broad view of operations, extending beyond internal operations to encompass the entire supply chain – from supplier, through the company, to the end consumer. It provides professionals with the knowledge necessary to understand and manage the integration and coordination of end-to end supply chain activities.

To be eligible for the APICS CSCP, a candidate must at least meet one of the following criteria:

  • apply online for eligibility
  • once accepted, register and pay for the exam
  • take the exam

APICS CSCP eligibility criteria:

  • Possess at least three (3) or more years of supply chain related work experience
  • Hold a conferred bachelors’ degree or the international equivalent*
  • Hold an APICS CPIM, APICS CFPIM, APICS CIRM, APICS SCOR-P, CPM, CSM or CPSM designation

The exam consists of 150 multiple-choice questions (130 operational and 20 pretest). Pretest questions do not contribute to the total sore but are necessary for research purposes. Pretest questions are randomly distributed among the scored items and are used for statistical purposes only, candidates should answer all exam questions.

Candidates have three and a half (3.5) hours to complete the exam.

APICS uses a scaled score methodology, which is a technique for equation scores in which the degree of difficulty varies from one exam form to the next. This ensures equivalent passing standards are maintained for each exam form.

The CSCP scaled score range is 200-350:

  • 200 – 299 Fail
  • 300 – 350 Pass

At the end of the exam, candidates will receive a printed score report with pass/fail information.

Candidates must have an approved eligibility application on file in order to sit for the APICS CSCP exam.
