What is it?

The program will provide learners with the skills to make informed decisions, and the ability to achieve a better level of performance. The APICS Principles program offers the option to create a custom course to meet the specific needs of the students. Any session can be taken separately or mixed-and-matched with other sessions from different Principles courses to enable education for specific learning needs.
