APICS is the leading professional association for supply chain and operations management and the premier provider of research, education and certification programs that elevate end-to-end supply chain excellence, innovation and resilience.


APICS brings new dimension to your career through its many educational programs, including its industry-essential certifications.  APICS is built around the theory that your career is not a fixed entity, but a living, growing process that needs to be fed with new skills, nurtured with challenge, and enhanced with learning.


The MidCarolina APICS chapter serves the Columbia SC and surrounding communities and offers education and certification programs.  We hold classes on the University of South Carolina campus.  Classes meet on the weekends to accommodate busy professionals.  The MidCarolina Chapter offers APICS Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) and APICS Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP) designations set to the industry standard.  See our education page for more information.

Our professional development meetings are held monthly, typically on a Tuesday or Wednesday evening.  Meetings are held at USC or at businesses in the community.      We advertise our PDM meetings on Eventbrite.  Click here for more details.APICSIMG1
