Training course schedule

open courses

In general, MGCM’s standard open courses are characterised by :

  • A standard number of days:

    • 3 or 4 days for the BASICS course

    • 5 days for the CSCP course

    • 13 days for the CPIM course

  • The time needed to prepare a certification

    • 2,5 to 3 months for the BASICS courses

    • 4 to 5 months for the CSCP course

    • 12 months for the CPIM course

  • The number of participants per groups consist of 10 to 15 participants

  • The interactivity which is why we limit the number of participants per group

  • The success of the group depends largely on the regular attendance of the participants to the course and the regularity of the personal study that is done between the group sessions with MGCM’s instructors. The richness of the discussions during the course will be enhanced by the self study and the examples that both participants and the instructors bring to illustrate the different subjects presented.


Open courses are particularly beneficial when a company wishes to give its employees the opportunity to meet and network with professionals from different enterprises representing different industry types and using different production methods.

Open courses are also recommended when an enterprise is not able to send its whole team for a course at the same time. On-site training is then not a viable option.

MGCM offers open courses for all of the following certifications : BASICS, CSCP, CPIM, . Each course should have a minimum of 10 registrants.
