New APICS partnership lightens the transportation-certification load

A new agreement between APICS The Association for Operations Management and the American Society of Transportation & Logistics (AST&L) grants Certified Supply Chain Professionals (CSCP) and professionals or fellows who are Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM/CFPIM) waivers for two of the six modules needed to obtain AST&L's Certification in Transportation and Logistics (CTL).

CSCP-certified professionals seeking their CTL can bypass the Supply Chain Management (elective) module needed to obtain CTL certification. CPIM- and CFPIM-certified professionals are able to bypass the Logistics Management (required) module.

APICS certifications are recognized worldwide as standards of professional excellence and quality within the manufacturing and service industries. The Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP) program provides professionals with the knowledge necessary to understand and manage the integration and coordination of activities within today's supply chains.

AST&L began the CTL Certification Program in 1948, known as the CPA of the transportation and logistics industry, and is constantly revising and updating the certification exams, keeping current with changes occurring in the field. To qualify, an individual must be an active member of AST&L, and have a four-year undergraduate degree or three years of professional experience.
