New achievement for Advance School




Advance School awarded Premier Elite Partner by ASCM


Today our school celebrates another important and remarkable achievement.  


Given the results of the last two years, ASCM has promoted Advance School to APICS Premier Elite Partner level.


Premier Elite status is given to partners that, for the last two consecutive years, have stood out for the quality of their service and the customer experience in the global Partner network, showing a long-term commitment to the development of the Supply Chain community and to the training excellence of APICS.


We are proud to report what Fernanda Debellian, ASCM Regional Director, Global Channels and Alliances, had to say about our promotion to ASCM Premier Elite Partner:



"In a year with so many unknowns,  Advance Operations Management School stayed strong and quickly adapted to the new reality while maintaining growth and providing excellent customer support".  



What does it means to be an ASCM Partner


ASCM partners play a key role in providing a high-quality customer experience and forming Supply Chain professionals able to create value within their organisations.


This partnership guarantees that the APICS certification programmes have global reach and produce positive and measurable results capable of transforming and improving companies all over the world and at the same time creating local networks of Supply Chain partners.

Advance and APICS


Since the school was founded in 2006, Advance has trained more than 3500 professionals, supplying inter-company courses in the Milan, Bologna, Rome and Padua sites and in-house courses all over Italy.


Thanks to the opening of a new office in Basel, Switzerland, in 2017 we began to export APICS training solutions outside of Italy and, since then,  we have provided trainings in English in the Basel, Lausanne and Bern offices, and face-to-face and interactive in-house courses across the world.


We were the first in Europe to be given Premier Channel Partner status by APICS for having respected its standards in terms of quality, the professionalism of instructors, number of people trained, partnerships with leading business schools and universities, and for the ability to create networks of businesses and professionals sharing experiences and best practices.


Formed as an offshoot of Advance School in 2019, Advance SC Solutions is a consultancy company in the Operations and SC area selected by various companies to implement improvements in 4 focus areas: Lean Six Sigma, E2E Supply Chain, Procurement and DDMRP.


In 2020 Advance delivered over 30 Interactive Live Webinar courses, with participants from 13 different countries and a teaching staff of over 30 Senior Managers that work for leading multinational companies.

What changes for our school


From February 2021 the Advance logo will be accompanied by the green ASCM Premier Elite Partner logo.


Regarding our training offer, as an ASCM Premier Elite Partner, our school will continue with its original role of developing talent in the Operations Management area, high-level professionals destined to cover managerial roles.
