For more than 60 years, APICS has demonstrated a commitment to global supply chain excellence.  Now part of ASCM, APICS is proud to offer CTSC, the premier certification program for transforming supply chains.

Many corporations list "APICS certification preferred" in their job postings.  Also, recent salary surveys showed that APICS-certified professionals earn significantly more than their peers. 


The APICS Certified in Transformation for Supply Chain (CTSC) equips supply chain professionals responsible for driving transformation with a collected group of best practices, knowledge and skills to initiate and enact supply chain transformation.


APICS CTSC credential holders gain the skills to effectively manage global supply chain transformation activities that involve their extended enterprise, including the web of suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, retailers and transportation carriers.  CTSC serves the needs of both professionals and employers by keeping you and your organization competitive in today’s ever-changing environment.

CTSC is comprised of 4 modules that are covered in one course, and the certification can be obtained by passing one exam.   No experience or college degree is needed to become CTSC certified.

Class Dates, Pricing and Location:


Our CTSC courses cover 24 hours of content, and the classes are spread out over a 3 month period.  Besides the standard course materials from APICS, we also cover additional content that can be on the CTSC exam.   Our students have an extremely high pass rate on APICS exams.   All classes are taught by an APICS master instructor with decades of practical experience, and who spends extra time (in addition to class time) helping his students learn the material.

These interactive online classes with live instruction are scheduled to start in May, and meet on Tuesday evenings from 6pm - 9pm Eastern Time for 8 classes.  Class dates (including the date of the first class) selected with student input in order to minimize scheduling conflicts.  Review sessions are held at the end of the course, which are particularly helpful for students that missed any of the classes.
