Advance your supply chain career with the APICS Certified in Transformation for Supply Chain (CTSC)
Participating in a beta exam can bring several benefits to individuals who are interested in enhancing their professional skills and knowledge. Here are some reasons why someone should consider participating in a beta exam:
A beta exam will only be conducted during the initial launch of the CTSC. You must test between October 2, 2023 - November 15, 2023 to participate.
The CTSC Learning System will be included in the CTSC Beta Bundle and will be available to purchase on July 26, 2023. Although you must take your exam by November 15, 2023, ASCM will extend the learning system access from the typical 12 months to 18 months.
At the launch of the CTSC program, candidates will not receive their scores immediately after taking the certification exam. Beta exam participants and anyone who takes the exam before March 2024 should expect to receive their score on March 21, 2024* (date subject to change).
This time reflects a comprehensive process including statistically analyzing results and data, evaluating the performance of each question and reading and evaluating all comments provided during the beta exam.
After the release of exam scores and results on March 21, 2024*, CTSC retake exams will be available for purchase. Second-chance exams will also be available for eligible CTSC bundle purchasers who tested on or before November 15, 2024.
After March 21, 2024, second-chance exams will be available to eligible test-takers within 48 hours of sitting for and failing their CTSC exam (restrictions apply). Candidates who fail an APICS exam must wait 14 full days before retaking the same exam.
