New operations & supply chain qualifications from IOM

Jul '09
A new partnership between two prestigious UK and US organisations will result in the increased availability of education, certification and membership programmes for professional personnel in operations and supply chain management throughout Great Britain.

The Institute of Operations Management (IOM), the largest operations management institute in the United Kingdom, has entered into a new alliance with APICS The Association for Operations Management, from the United States. The alliance will expand APICS' presence in the UK and will result in APICS internationally recognised certification examinations, related products and membership services, including local meetings, conferences and other networking opportunities to be available in the UK.

APICS certification will now be accessible to members of the IOM and of its sister organisation The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (UK).

APICS Chief Executive Officer Abe Eshkenazi and IOM/CILT Chief Executive Steve Agg signing the partnership agreement.

The partnership makes available in Great Britain two key internationally recognised certification programmes. Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) is a programme designed to test candidates' in-depth knowledge of a variety of subjects specific to production and inventory management. Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP) extends beyond internal operations to encompass all steps throughout the supply chain.

Leonie Edwards, Manager of IOM, said 'We are proud and delighted to be the sole non-profit organisation to represent APICS in Great Britain. The partnership will enable the IOM to provide more comprehensive resources to operations and supply chain professionals throughout Great Britain and to bring an international perspective to our work.'

APICS Chief Executive Officer Abe Eshkenazi said 'This collaboration creates opportunities for knowledge sharing that will benefit the profession worldwide.'
