Supply Chain Training Praised by Global Firm

| By: Britten, Casey

Ingersoll Rand, a diversified, global company that provides products, services, and solutions to enhance the quality and comfort of air in homes and buildings, praised Fox Valley Technical College’s delivery platform as a key to its enterprise goals and operational excellence.

FVTC’s training role in this capacity is done in partnership with APICS, the leading professional association for supply chain and operations management and the premiere provider of research, education, and certification programs that elevate supply chain innovation. FVTC and APICS have enjoyed a longstanding partnership in providing relevant, measurable supply chain solutions for companies around the world.

The following excerpt is from a recent APICS case study regarding Ingersoll Rand’s training success in materials management:

While some chose to self-study, the majority took advantage of an online classroom, delivered through Fox Valley Technical College, which prepares candidates and incorporates group discussions and instructor engagement. After embracing this educational program, Ingersoll Rand’s CPIM certification exam pass rates exceeded the global average of APICS exam takers. In fact, Ingersoll Rand employees score substantially higher than the global average on all five of the exams required to obtain the CPIM designation.

This recent testimonial exemplifies FVTC’s global impact when it comes to addressing workplace training needs.
