Today’s mar­ket demands skilled prac­ti­tion­ers to sup­port the man­age­ment of com­plex sup­ply chains

With all areas of the sup­ply chain increas­ing­ly impact­ing an organization’s com­pet­i­tive­ness, today’s mar­ket demands skilled prac­ti­tion­ers to sup­port the man­age­ment of com­plex sup­ply chains. The Sup­ply Man­age­ment Train­ing meets the pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment needs of prac­ti­tion­ers with a series of tac­ti­cal cours­es designed to pro­vide a sol­id skills base.

Offered in coop­er­a­tion with the Sup­ply Chain Cana­da, this pro­gram will equip prac­ti­tion­ers with the nec­es­sary skills to sup­port the sup­ply chain func­tion and the relat­ed busi­ness skills to help advance their careers.

The Sup­ply Man­age­ment Train­ing pro­gram will be of inter­est to ear­ly to mid-career prac­ti­tion­ers, as well as to indi­vid­u­als who work out­side of the sup­ply man­age­ment field but have pro­cure­ment, logis­tics, trans­porta­tion, or oper­a­tions responsibilities.

Those with supervisory/​management respon­si­bil­i­ty seek­ing knowl­edge of their direct reports’ sup­ply man­age­ment func­tion­al areas would also ben­e­fit from these courses.

Learn­ers in the Sup­ply Man­age­ment Train­ing pro­gram come from posi­tions such as junior buy­ers, pur­chas­ing assis­tants, pro­duc­tion plan­ners, ware­house clerks, mate­r­i­al han­dlers, logis­tics admin­is­tra­tors, and inven­to­ry co-ordi­na­tors, as well as asso­ciates, ana­lysts, and specialists.
