Every year, we assign the JPS APICS Top Performer Award to those professionals who, after attending a training course, better perform the exam to obtain their APICS certification – CPIM, CSCP or CLTD. We collected their opinions regarding APICS programs, the goals they achieved thanks to the deep knowledge of Supply Chain Management and distinction they got thanks to APICS CPIM, CSCP or CLTD designation.

Before you start your APICS CPIM, APICS CSCP or APICS CLTD learning experience, you might have many questions regarding the reason your colleagues suggested precisely an APICS certification. Companies really know the value that a global designation can give to those brilliant employees capable of passing an APICS exam and become more skilled.

There is a common opinion among them: a globally recognized title like an APICS certification can truly help understanding how to manage a Supply Chain strategy. It also encourages managers to make a step forward in their career.
