Develop a Team that Understands Production and Inventory Activities Across Global Operations
The APICS Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) program is the cornerstone of a successful employee development program for supply chain organizations. Professionals that earn the CPIM designation gain the dynamic ability to understand and evaluate production and inventory activities within a company’s global operations.
APICS CPIM is the world’s most respected designation among supply chain organizations and professionals. Organizations value the program’s ability to effectively train a workforce in critical concepts and strategies to increase functional knowledge of production and inventory management, improve internal operations and increase customer satisfaction.
CPIM training can be conducted on-site and online for your supply chain group, department or cross-functional project team. You set the date, location and venue. APICS manages registration, training materials and the instructor. Self-study programs are also available.
Benefits of group training
Speed – Group training allows an organization to train teams quickly, during the hours of the day and time of year that works best.
Flexibility – On site, online and self-study course delivery enables organizations to select the best program design for employee success.
Customization – In-house training helps attendees understand production and inventory strategies within the unique context of your business.
Group competency and relationship building – Taking your team through training together drives consistent learning, cross–functional thinking and collaboration.
