New Courses Announced! Essential Skills for Operations & Supply Chain Management Professionals

APICS SFV is proud to announce our new vocational education series. These short (6-8 week) courses are designed to provide specific training to Manufacturing, Service, and Distribution employees with the essential skills and knowledge needed to survive in today's competitive job market. Courses are designed specifically for Inventory Control, Warehouse & Distribution empllyees, Production Control, and Purchasing employees.

We expect that our students will take the course that relates to their current job or their desired job and then proceed to the capstone course "Essentials of Supply Chain and Operations Management" to broaden their view of their environment. These courses provide students with a strong foundation to move towards APICS Certification. These classes are offered in partnership with our local colleges and we are pleased to announce that these courses will also be available on I-TRAIN for those who are currently unemployed or looking to enhance their current skills or change careers towards Supply Chain related occupations. Classes are starting at both COC and PDC. All classes are virtual. Sign up now.

A message from the APICS-SFV Board

Over the course of the last few weeks with the evolving news about the spread of Covid-19 and in an abundance of caution, all our classes are now on line.  Our paramount concern is the safety and peace of mind of our members and community. 

All instructors are using Zoom and all the exciting features available to us to make the classes as interactive and engaging as our in-person classes. Attendees from California may qualify for ETP (Employee Trainng Panel) funding and should consult with our Community College partners to verify how to meet requirements.

We wish that you and your families stay safe and appreciate your patience and understanding.
