Why Pursue CSCP Certification?

The APICS CSCP program takes a broad view of the field, extending beyond internal operations to encompass all the steps throughout the supply chain—from the supplier, through the company, to the end consumer—and provides you with the knowledge to effectively manage the integration of these activities to maximize a company's value chain.

The CSCP body of knowledge is made up of the following four domains:

  • Supply chain management fundamentals

  • Building competitive operations, planning and logistics

  • Managing customer and supplier relationships

  • Using information technology to enable supply chain management

Business leaders benefit from a new industry education & certification credential. The APICS Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP) provides business leaders with the skill set necessary to understand and manage the integration and coordination of activities with today’s increasingly complex supply chains.
