What people say about partnering with AAPSCM®
I passed the ACPP at first attempt. My career started as a sales representative leader at Adecco Ltd. in California. I managed several staffing-related to services as well as some outsourcing projects. I was interested in gettting a certification in Procurement Management. A friend at the UMES recommended AAPSCM. I spoke with a representative who set me up and within a month I got certified. The certification helped me get the store manager position at my present Walmart store in San Francisco, CA. I highly recommend this certification to people who are interested in operations management.
I joined AAPSCM as a student member in my senior at Clemson University, SC with recommendation from my professor. I attended their inaugural conference in September virtually and took the exam that same month and passed. Since I joined the Spartanburg SC Charter, I have met many experts in Supply Chain from Africa and Bahamas and gained a lot from them. I have had opportunities to meet with many professionals who fell in love with Supply Chain management and had a great deal of experience. I recommend this certification to all who are interested.
