APICS Dayton and Sinclair Partnership


We are pleased to announce that the Dayton Chapter of APICS, in partnership with Sinclair Community College’s Workforce Development Division, is teaming up to offer the APICS CSCP and CPIM Certification Review Courses. The class offerings are: Basics of Supply Chain Management (CPIM), Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP), Master Planning of Resources (CPIM), Detailed Scheduling and Planning (CPIM), Execution and Control of Operations (CPIM) and Strategic Management of Resources (CPIM).

We made the decision to team up with Sinclair to because we felt that this would be a win/win scenario for both parties. As most of you are aware, the Dayton Chapter's membership ranks have been declining over the years. We also have a high percentage of members that are certified. Those facts, coupled with the poor economy, the past few years has negatively impacted enrollment in our training programs. By partnering with Sinclair we have the opportunity to tap into Sinclair's strong marketing presence in the Miami Valley. We will also have access to Sinclair's training facilities in downtown Dayton and they will handle most of the administrative tasks associated with the classes. We are also investigating the possibility of Sinclair administering the computer-based CPIM and CSCP exams. We are optimistic that this partnership will produce increased enrollment levels and improved services for our members.

For more information and to register for any one of these courses, call Sinclair at (937) 252-9787 or visit their website. You may also call Jack Kerr at (937) 272-4604 if you have questions regarding the classes.
