What is the APICS CSCP certification?
The APICS CERTIFIED SUPPLY CHAIN PROFESSIONAL (CSCP) CERTIFICATION PROGRAM is recognized worldwide as the premier supply chain management education and certification program. The APICS CSCP program takes a broad view of operations, extending beyond internal operations to encompass the entire supply chain—from supplier, through the company, to the end consumer. The program provides professionals with the knowledge necessary to understand and manage the integration and coordination of end-to-end supply chain activities.

The APICS CSCP program is divided into four modules to provide participants with the best possible educational assessment and knowledge base. By earning the APICS CSCP designation, you demonstrate that you have mastered the APICS supply chain management body of knowledge and that you are committed to the profession. You must pass one comprehensive exam to earn the APICS CSCP designation.

What is the difference between the APICS CPIM and the APICS CSCP designation?
The APICS CPIM certification provides a common platform for individuals to evaluate their knowledge of production and inventory management. The APICS CPIM focuses primarily on manufacturing and provides an in-depth view of materials management, master scheduling, production planning, forecasting, and quality improvement within the confines of the operation. The APICS CSCP certification takes a broader view, extending the APICS CPIM knowledge outside of a company's internal operations to encompass all of the steps throughout the supply chain—from suppliers through the company to the end consumer—and how to effectively manage the integration of these activities to maximize a company's value chain.

What are the requirements for earning the APICS CSCP certification?
To earn APICS CSPC certification, you must pass one, comprehensive exam.

CSCP eligibility requirements:
To be eligible to register for the APICS CSCP exam, an individual must meet one of the following criteria:

3 years of related business experience* or
Bachelor’s degree or the international equivalent**, or
CPIM, CFPIM, CIRM, CSCP, CLTD SCOR-P, CTL, C.P.M., CSM or CPSM designations

  • *Related business experience:

APICS defines "related business experience" as work that is directly connected to some aspect of the supply chain. This can include raw materials extraction, transportation and logistics, procurement, manufacturing, warehousing, distribution, retail, customer service, software design and support, and other areas that directly affect the supply chain. Workers who operate transportation or materials moving equipment or machines or processing equipment that require an intermediate level of training would qualify. Managers, officials, professionals, technicians, sales personnel, quality and quality control personnel, and skilled craft workers will generally be considered eligible.
Examples of work experience that does not qualify include clerical and administrative support positions such as data entry, duplicating machine operator, file clerks, office machine operators, secretaries, telephone operators, order clerks and/or unskilled labor positions where the duties require little or no independent judgment or specialized training.

 **Equivalent of a bachelor's degree:
APICS defines the equivalent of a bachelor's degree as the level of study that would qualify an individual for a graduate program in the country where the undergraduate degree was earned.

How many questions are on the APICS CSCP exam?
The APICS CSCP exam consists of 175 multiple-choice questions (150 operational and 25 pretest). The pretest questions do not contribute to your total score but are necessary for research purposes. These pretest questions are randomly distributed among the scorable items and will be used for statistical purposes only. The pretest items are similar to the scorable items on the test, and candidates will not know which items will be scored and which will not. Candidates should answer all exam questions.

How much time will candidates have to complete the APICS CSCP exam? 
Candidates will be allowed four hours of test time.  

For questions or assistance with registration, please contact Kathy, Chapter Admin:  admin@apics-gr.org or (616) 490-8608.
