APICS CSCP is the supply chain course in which you will learn to manage and improve production and distribution chains.
The influence of supply chain management within companies is increasing. The corona pandemic has increased the focus on logistics and supply chain and the use of strategic logistics in business processes. Supply chains are constantly changing, and new developments are occurring in all industries, from industrial to service-oriented and from profit to non-profit.
What is supply chain management?
Customers expect high quality for a low price. They also expect fast and reliable delivery of products and services. As supply chain management becomes more and more critical, so does proper training. A good education helps manage production and distribution to face global competition effectively.
With our APICS CSCP course, you learn how to deal with these developments in an international setting. This course focuses on supply chain management, including logistics management in the supply chain, managing and controlling logistics processes, and communication in the supply chain.
