Today’s global market demands skilled practitioners to support the management of complex supply chains. SCMA’s Supply Management Training (SMT) program meets this need by providing a series of tactical courses and seminars that develop a solid skills base.

The SMT program will equip early to mid-level practitioners with the necessary skills to support supply chain functions and related business skills, which will help advance their careers. If you don’t work in supply management, but have some procurement, logistics, or operations responsibilities, these courses would also be very beneficial. Equally, they would be advantageous if you supervise individuals with those responsibilities.

  • No education or experience pre-requisites required
