WHY GO FOR IT.

The Certified Stores and Stock Controller (CSSC) program is one of the best certification programs in the field of supply chain management. This program helps employers to provide an exceptional kick-start to transform both new and current employees to a work-to-do professional status to reach a high level of productivity in a very short time.

The CSSC Program provides the learners with a practical hands-on platform on which to develop their skills, both in the classroom and in the workplace. We left the theory at the door!

​CSSC program enable employers to identify where the knowledge and training gaps are within their organization. Having a well-qualified and certified staff is a great competitive advantage and branding tool for a world-class business.

Operating within a store’s environment and managing the large quantities and value of stock is a competitive advantage in today’s dynamic economy. Gaining this competitive advantage requires being able to identify the various operations within the store and recognizing the need to implement continuous improvement initiatives to make a store more productive. Being able to identify different categories of stock and knowing how to best ensure the right material is in the right place at the time it is needed.

The program covers the role of the store in the 21st Century, how the store fits into the greater supply chain, the roles and responsibilities of those that work in a stores environment, the need for safety and security of both personnel and stock, the receipt, storage and issuing of stock, as well as the proper management of a company’s valuable assets. Each of which presents a challenge to those responsible.

CERTIFICATION JOURNEY

During the past three decades several supply chain certification bodies have been established; however, in the main most of the education offerings have concentrated on the theoretical aspects of the subject matter and fell short on the practical applications.

These certification programs enhance the thought process of the professionals, but many certified professionals are unable to implement the theory into practice without some extra help along the way. So, after several years of research, VCARE Academy has taken the initiative and is launching a series of supply chain certification programs to fill the existing gap in the supply chain education. These certification programs are purely based on the practical aspect of the many facets of the supply chain.

We can help you improve your supply chain expertise, and at the same time, enhance your company’s supply chain capabilities.
