The APICS CSCP Designation

What is CSCP & Why Take It?

The APICS Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP) program is the first and only supply chain certification that encompasses the end-to-end global supply chain. Launched in 2006, the APICS CSCP designation has been earned by more than 19,000 professionals worldwide, in 82 countries, and is the standard in global supply chain education.

APICS CSCP program benefits can be achieved in a matter of months, allowing individuals and teams a quick return on investment and long-term bottom line results. No other certification program provides the combination of flexible learning options and globally recognized credentials that sets the worldwide standard for supply chain management excellence.

This supply chain certification will help you validate your knowledge and skill, gain recognition for your professional expertise, and increase your earning potential.  According to the ASCM 2022 Supply Chain Salary and Career Survey, those with at least one APICS certification earn 25% more than those without.
