The APICS CPIM exam: how to get started

Please visit our bulletins page, where you can download the APICS CPIM Exam Bulletin for Outside North America. This provides information on APICS CPIM exam modules and testing procedures outside North America.

Step one: request an Authorization to Test (ATT)

Before scheduling an exam, you must obtain an Authorization to Test (ATT) email. Please review the information in this email carefully. If any information is incorrect, or needs to be updated, please contact APICS at exams@apics.org

You have two primary payment options: with an exam credit, which is purchased on your behalf through an authorized APICS partner, or directly to APICS. To find an APICS partner, please visit our APICS Partner and Event Finder page.

Step two: schedule an exam

APICS CPIM exams are administered outside North America by Prometric, an independent service provider and expert in providing knowledge measurement services. To schedule an APICS CPIM exam through Prometric, or learn more about the scheduling process, please visit the Prometric website.
