Classes

Courses are held at both public venues and corporate venues. Many of our corporate clients appreciate having members of the public attend their venue, as they realize everyone benefits from interacting with people with differing operations and supply chain backgrounds. Open seats are usually available in these courses.

Contact the Chapter if you are interested in finding out more about class availability.

      CPIM Part 2

      This class will be held on Thursday evenings for 13 weeks, ending on the 28th of March, 2019.


      The new CPIM program requires that candidates pass two exams instead of five.  The updated format delivers the same knowledge and skills as the legacy program, but has been restructured to meet the learning needs of today’s busy supply chain professionals. CPIM Part 2 reduces the classwork from 4 modules at $800/module totaling $3,200 to 1 module at $2,100. This module has 13 three hour sessions which reduces class time and test preparation time. So you win big with this change, reduced cost and less preparation time with a focused approach to the core supply chain principles.
