The CPIM Part 1, Basics of Supply Chain Management module, is the first of the 2 parts necessary for APICS CPIM certification.

The CPIM Part 1 module provides the basic knowledge to manage the complete Supply Chain from the Supplier to the Client. In addition to generally dealing with the contents of CPIM certification, it also introduces and explains in detail the professional terminology of Supply Chain and Operations Management which is indispensable for operating in both local and international contexts.



Advance has designed the BSCM Interactive Learning Webinar modules to respond to the needs of those who, for private or professional reasons, cannot take part in the Inter-company course’s classroom lessons. Participants will take part in 6 sessions of 1.5 hours of individual study through group conference calls with a certified instructor. The conf-call will continue at intervals of 2-3 weeks.

At the end of the course the participant will take  the CPIM Part 1 exam which represents the first step towards CPIM certification.

The CPIM Part 1 programme is a valid tool to increase the level of company awareness by creating a common foundation of knowledge within the organization.
