Operations Resource Management

The Operations Resource Management (ORM) Certificate Program is a 6-course learning partnership developed jointly between the APICS San Diego, APICS Inland Empire Chapters and California State University San Marcos.

Whether looking to update your knowledge in Operations Management, learn a specific skill, or pursue CPIM certification, this program provides the knowledge needed to become more valuable and effective in today’s competitive business environment. Best of all, these classes can be taken in any order, and are scheduled so you can earn your ORM certificate in just over 12 months. They also are a great review for those taking exams to earn their CPIM certificate. If you have already earned your CPIM, each ORM class is worth 24 APICS recertification points.

Each course meets one evening per week over ten weeks and is approved by the National Association of Purchasing Management (NAPM) for three points each course toward your Certified Purchasing Manager (CPM) designation. A passing grade of C- or better is required to receive your ORM certificate.
