How do I study with ASCI?

Currently the Australasian Supply Chain Institute offers two study methods for completing APICS Certification, Self-Study and Online Certification Review Course and one study method for ISM Certification, Self-Study. 

Self-Study 

Is just that, you receive the relevant Learning System and you work at your own pace, unaided, to complete the course.

Online Certification Review Courses 

Are delivered over an online webinar style platform in interactive sessions facilitated by an APICS accredited instructor.  The sessions complement the Self-Study you must do and allow an opportunity for students to check learnings, ask questions and have the instructor cover off key concepts.  

These sessions are delivered on a weekly basis in the evenings.

Certification Coach (APICS Certification Only)
