Professional Pathways

Since the 1970s, ASCI has been instrumental in building the foundational knowledge required for Australasian supply chain roles through strong global connections with certification partners.
ASCI now has the exclusive global partnerships to offer three clearly defined industry pathways that lead to ASCI certified status.

 

The ASCI Professional Pathways are designed as a standard of excellence for professionals in Operations Management, Logistics Management and Supply Management. 

The ASCI Certifications program reflects the expanded knowledge, skills and abilities required to be able to a successfully practice in the specific area. Based on local industry experience, globally recognised professional certifications, alignment to the ASCI Supply Chain Body of Knowledge and enhanced with local case study applications, the ASCI Certifications is a mark of dedication and distinction.

There are currently three Professional Pathways against which a candidate can be certified. 
Obtaining ASCI Certification in any of these pathways, requires the following prerequisites:

  1. Relevant Industry Work Experience
  2. Global Professional Certifications as per the requirements of each of the particular pathway
  3. ASCI Plus Membership

After the prerequisites have been confirmed, the candidate will be required to submit an industry case study in the area of the particular pathway, applying the principles from the pathway. The guidelines to preparing and submitting the case study are given here
