Basic level of APICS for Instructors program

The APICS Train the Trainer module is the basic level of the ‘APICS for Instructors’ program developed by the supply chain management association APICS to train their own instructors.

Over the 2-day course, participants learn techniques for managing communication to a group of people by transforming a traditional frontal teaching session into an valuable interactive experience based on active listening.

Course participants are active protagonists that put principles into practice and evaluate each other during the session.

On completion of the course, JPS, as APICS Premier Channel Partner, will issue an internationally recognized certificate of participation.

  • the processes of education and training

  • the selection and appropriate use of media to support a training session
