Exciting Changes coming to the CPIM Program!

The APICS Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) is one of the most recognized and preferred certifications for Supply Chain Managers, Materials Managers, Operations Managers and countless other career growth job classifications. CPIM certification is touted by many to positively influence an employee's ability to positively contribute to better management of inventory and resources.

APICS is currently working on restructuring the program from the current five module format to a two part program that will both reduce the overall cost associated with the program and accelerate the expected time period from getting started to completing the course of study.

Part one of the new program will be similar enough to the current Basics of Supply Chain Management Module that individuals can complete that module and once they have successfully completed that exam, apply that as part one of the new program. Certification then can be accomplished by completing part two of the new program and successfully completing that exam.  




Start planning now for APICS 2018 taking place September 30 - October 2, 2018 in Chicago, Illinois!
