APICS CPIM Certification Prep Scheduled at MCC Shah Center

[Friday, July 19, 2019]

According to Harvard Business Review (March 2018) The U.S. supply chain contains 37% of all jobs, employing 44 million people. These jobs have significantly higher than average wages, and account for much of the innovative activity in the economy. APICS, the association for supply chain management and not-for-profit international education organization develops these employees by providing a Certification in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM). CPIM certification is globally recognized as the standard of professional competence in production and inventory management and companies rely on designees to maximize ROI and increase customer satisfaction.

The CPIM Certification consists of Part 1 and Part 2 exams. In partnership with APICS Chicago Chapter, McHenry County College has scheduled a Part 1 certification prep course. This 24-hour program is scheduled for Thursdays, September 5 through October 24 at 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. at MCC Shah Center in McHenry. Certification prep courses for Part 2 will be scheduled at a later date.

The program is designed for careers in supply chain management, buying and planning, material management, production planning and consulting and is also appropriate for those not interested in certification. Topics covered include Introduction to Supply Chain Management; Demand Management; Master Planning, Material Requirements Planning, Capacity Management; Purchasing; Inventory Management; Execution and Control: Physical Distribution; and Continuous Improvement. The instructor-led, comprehensive, CPIM course combines reading materials and interactive web-based study tools to support learning.
