APICS Membership

The partnership between APICS – the prestigious US Association for Operations Management – and the Institute of Operations Management (IOM) provides increased availability of education, certification and membership programmes for professional personnel in operations and supply chain management throughout the UK. 

The alliance expands APICS’ presence in the UK and makes APICS internationally recognised certification examinations, related products and membership services, including local meetings, conferences and other networking opportunities, readily available in the UK. 

The partnership brings a range of internationally recognised products to the UK, this includes the very popular: Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) is a programme designed to broaden and 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. 

What does this mean to me?

In today’s fast-paced and increasingly global business environment, you need to stay on top of your game in order to compete with – and overtake – the competition. In addition to the UK networking, information tools and benefits IOM membership provides, your organisation needs to keep up to speed on a global level, and joining, or upgrading to the new IOM/APICS joint membership package provides the ideal solution to your knowledge, education and information needs. The table below gives an at-a-glance summary of the benefits of IOM and APICS membership.
