How to Enroll
WHAT ARE THE DUTIES OF A CERTIFIED SUPPLY CHAIN PROFESSIONAL?
Supply chain professionals may work anywhere along the supply "chain" that links production, distribution and delivery of commodities, goods and products. This may include purchasing and procurement, fabrication and manufacturing, transportation and warehousing or final delivery to stores and individual consumers. Supply chain managers oversee one or more aspects of these chains.
IS CERTIFICATION IMPORTANT FOR SUPPLY CHAIN PROFESSIONALS?
Certifications such as the CSCP ensure that you have learned end-to-end supply chain operations. As supply chains become more integrated and complex, the CSCP signals to employers, team members and clients that you have knowledge of each step in the logistical supply chain. Certification also sets you apart as a serious professional who has completed a challenging program of study for your own development.
