GET APICS Certification in Lowest Cost
Now APICS is changed to ASCM. So lets call this ASCM..
This is going to be very small Blog.. Because we will just talk about is there any way we spend Less and Get APICS certification ? (CPIM ,CSCP,CLTD)
My Answer would be – YES !!! . So Now Talk about HOW!!!
ASCM never made it mandatory for membership fee it is just an optional either you can take or not that has nothing to do with your certification exam , Yes it might give you discount once you purchase other stuff from ASCM. So my suggestion would be to spend on Membership fee.. because you get a lot of things like lot of Supply chain related webinar , Every year two time career fair Entrance and a lot of other study contents also .
Major Expenses of this certification is if you take any Instructor led program and other program and study material.. Here you can save your Money. I will advise to Invest first in EXAM Content Manual if you are not member, if you are member you can download it free.
Apics Certification Books
ASCM will never ask any single question directly from the study material they will provide you . it is all concept wise and conceptual theories could be studied from any where. So i can suggest for a website from where you can purchase USED BOOKS which is referred by ASCM . website name is – Thrift books you can search that in Google (This Blog is not Sponsored by Thrift Books).
Yes, so this could be a lengthy process instead of buying study material from ASCM Website Go for ASCM refereed book and buy those books and study those books (OLD Version of books are also workable) . So you can save your money here.
and then last stage GO FOR ASCM Exam fee.
So Generally you cost will less than approx $1000. Cons of this process (Not Buying APICS Study material) – You have to study more and Focused study based on EXAM Content manual will be required..
