    What We Offer

    Instructor Led Courses
    The Winnipeg Chapter offers the CPIM and CSCP certification preparatory courses in instructor led environments. The delivery method allows the student to interface not only with an experienced instructor but to interface with other students from different industries. We have found that for many of our past students the classroom setting helps them prepare for tackling the actual certification exams. The students found that the information concerning instructor/student experiences and questions raised by students helped prepare them for the examinations.
    The Winnipeg Chapter offers the 10 - 3 hour session offering to those people that find it difficult to commit to 3-4 full day sessions. The 10 session also offers the student the chance to reflect on the information presented in each class. Course Calendar


    On Site Training
    The Winnipeg Chapter also offers APICS sponsored courses taught in-house to companies with 10 or more employees wanting to take the same course at the same time. The number of sessions can be modified to suit a company as long as the course content can be covered in the time allotted. We will negotiate each company in-house training course to ensure that both the company's training need and the course content is not compromised.

    Self Study Method
    The CPIM and CSCP series of preparatory courses are also available through Self Study and On-line Training.
    Self study is as it states that a person will work on their own to study in preparation for writing the certification exam.
