APICS Middle Tennessee is happy to announce a series of CPIM certification exam preparation courses starting December 3 at Lipscomb University.
These six sessions will cover the first module, Basics of Supply Chain Management. The basic concepts in managing the complete flow of materials in a supply chain from suppliers to customers are covered in the Basics module. This module covers manufacturing, distribution, service and retail industries. This includes the fundamental relationships in the design, planning, execution, monitoring, and control that occur. Knowledge of the material in this module is assumed as a prerequisite for the other APICS CPIM modules, which cover similar topics in much greater depth.
* Understanding basic businesswide concepts, including understanding various supply chain environments
* Managing demand, including markets and customer expectations
* Designing products, processes, and information systems

The cost to the participant will be $400 which includes printed materials and online resources, but it does not include the cost of the certification exam. The participant will be responsible for scheduling and paying for the exam separately. Please register by November 26.
