APICS DC Metro will be hosting the third series of LOA Certified Supply Chain Professional review courses this fall in Springfield, VA:

Weekly Full Day Friday class – Starts 18 Sept through 30 Oct 2015, CSCP Friday Weekly Class
Full Week class – the week of 26 Oct 2015,  LOA Full Week CSCP Class

From manufacturers to service providers, regardless of whether a firm’s clients are businesses or consumers, for-profit or not, supply chain management (SCM) impacts all organizations.  Customers already demand high quality and low prices.  In today’s world, the importance of buyer convenience, delivery speed and promise date reliability is increasing exponentially from a client’s value perspective.  As a result, flawless deployment has become essential to competing successfully in a global marketplace.

Logistics Officers in all branches of the military must undertake continuous improvement to meet the needs of their service as well as prepare for the requirements which they will face in their transition to the commercial sector. CSCP takes a broad view of the SCM field, extending beyond internal operations to encompass all the links throughout a value network—from the supplier, through the company, to the end consumer—and how to effectively integrate, manage, and innovate these processes to optimize trading partner performance.  A full suite of Web tools with an online dictionary, e-flashcards, and pre- and post-tests are included with each Participant Learning System.

Pricing is all-inclusive (materials, Web access, Exam fee, tuition plus a free 3-hour Review Session). To register please click on the link below.  Allow at least 2 weeks before our opening session to receive your materials.
