Anyone here take APICS CSCP? Is it worth it? What type of role are you in?

Will be taking exam at the end of the month. Currently working for a firm focused on procurement. Projects consist of P2P tech implementations and sourcing. In my opinion, unless you plan to transition to an industry role or are in a pure supply chain consulting role, I find the total cost for the CSCP hard to justify. If I could do it again, I would have pursued a lean six sigma green belt or expanded my skills in python. My degree is in SCM; the CSCP feels like a surface level review of topics I learned in college.

Just finished my first year out of school and have recently moved home to save some money and get a sense of how long remote work will last..... I’m curious if anyone else is in a similar position and further, if there’s interest in pooling consultants together at a remote office that would look a lot like a big rental house on Lake Tahoe
