Supply Chain Professional Development (SCPD) Programme
Supply Chain Professional Development Programme - Diploma and Advanced Diploma
The Supply Chain Professional Development (SCPD) Programme is an innovative e-learning programme for logistics executives who wish to upgrade themselves or executives who wish to switch to a career in logistics. It is believed to be one of the first e-learning programmes in logistics and supply chain management to be offered to the industry in Singapore.
The SCPD Programme adopts a blended learning methodology which combines the convenience and efficiency of online learning with the face-to-face contact with module facilitators in classroom interaction sessions.
In today's fast-paced working world, working adults are faced with increasing pressure to balance their work and personal commitments. It has become a difficult juggling act to go for upgrading programmes, handle their daily work responsibilities and spend what little time that is left over with their families. In competitive markets, companies have to deliver more value with less. Losing productivity from workers who have to go away on external training is becoming more and more costly to the firms. Online learning provides an alternative for companies to achieve their desired learning outcomes at a relatively lower cost and minimise the loss of productivity from workers who have to attend external training programmes.
The SCPD Programme is divided into two levels catering to working adults with different backgrounds. The first level comprises four basic modules. These modules are as follows:
SCPD04: Customer Service and Quality Management
The next level consists of four advanced modules and they are namely,
SCPD08: Business Logistics Management
Each module takes 1 month to complete. During this period, course participants can post their queries at the online forum for discussion with the module facilitator and the other course participants. The online forum provides an opportunity for the module facilitator as well as the course participants to interact with one another and share knowledge.
METHOD OF ASSESSMENT
There are practice sessions interspersed at regular intervals in each module. These practice sessions are designed to trigger the course participants' memories and test their understanding of the concepts they have just learned.
There is an online quiz for each topic of a module. The online quiz consists of 10 multiple-choice questions (MCQs). The online quiz tests the course participants' level of understanding of the topic and the passing mark for the online quiz is 70%. A single attempt at the quiz is given for every course participant. The online quiz provides timely feedback to the course participants in their preparation for the written examinations.
Course participants have to sit for a written paper for each module.
