Course Description

This accelerated learning boot camp covers 2.5 days of instructor-led facilitation and is designed to cover key learning points of the CLTD learning system. The learning system content is included in the course. 

This boot camp is an exam preparatory course for the self-study learner planning to take the APICS CLTD certification exam. The course accelerates learning by focusing on key concepts and terminology covered in the exam. This boot camp, in tandem with the reading materials and online learning courseware, provides a roadmap for those who intend to sit for the exam. Please note that this course is a great jump start to additional self-study and covers comprehensive material, but students should not rely on this course alone to pass the examination.
