APICS Programs

A certification in supply chain management can help you to get ahead in your career.

Waubonsee’s Workforce Development offers courses that can lead to either of the two gold-standard APICS certifications:  the Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP) certification preparation course, as well as the Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) certification preparation (all five courses). Enrolling in certification preparation classes is a great way to meet people in your industry, network, and learn more about the supply chain world. It can also set you apart from others in your field. These courses are essential to prepare you for the challenging APICS certification exams. Our courses are offered year-round and are taught by APICS certified instructors with many years of experience in their fields. 

What courses should I take to prepare for these certification exams?

For CPIM, there are five essential courses:

  1. Basics of Supply Chain Management
  2. Master Planning of Resources
