Comments from our graduates

“The CPSM exam preparatory course was a practical one, covering different topics across supply management. It also offered a holistic view of the tasks of each module.

The instructor was CPSM qualified, who is a seasoned professional in the field. Discussion of sample questions in class stimulated thinking, logic and led to quick decision-making in the exam. In general, exam schedule was fairly flexible. I applied to take the exam at my own pace.

Practice makes perfect. The preparatory course is the best pathway to become CPSM accredited.”

 

-Vancy Cham

“The CPSM course is an in-depth, broad and practical supply chain management course. This course not only allowed me to increase my understanding of supply chain but also helped me in my work.

The tutor is an experienced and knowledgeable person who can explain some complex concepts with examples and make them easy for us to understand. I would say this course can help more people who are interested in the supply chain to perform better in their work.”
