CSCP (Certified Supply Chain Professional) Classes and Materials
CSCP (Certified Supply Chain Professional) certification preparation courses meet for 5 days spread out over a 2-3 month period. These classes are highly recommended, and include additional content (beyond the standard APICS study materials) that can be on the APICS CSCP exam.
Spring 2014 CSCP classes started in late-March. Fall 2014 CSCP classes are currently scheduled to start in late September, with class dates chosen to minimize scheduling conflicts for students. Students also get to choose between attending classes on Fridays or Saturdays, or a combination of both. Classes run from 9am - 4:30pm, and meet at the Akron General Wellness Center (4125 Medina Road, Akron). APICS CSCP study materials may be purchased at a discount to the price charged by APICS International when you register for this course.
To obtain more information about these classes, provide input on which dates class should be held, or to register, please email CSCP@AkronAPICS.org or call 330-668-6084.

Our chapter held the Lean Enterprise Workshop three times recently, and received excellent feedback from all the students. We are currently offering this course to local companies as a customized in-house workshop.
