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.
