You may earn college credit for passing APICS certification exams. The National College Credit Recommendation Service (CCRS) and the Canadian Supply Chain Sector Council (CSCSC) have college credit recommendations for current APICS CSCP and the legacy CPIM certification exams.

We are currently in the preliminary stages for evaluating the National College Credit Recommendation Service (CCRS) evaluation process for CLTD and the reconfigured CPIM program (Part 1 and Part 2 exams).   At this time, we do not have a definitive date for when the NCCRS evaluation process will be completed for CLTD and the reconfigured CPIM certification programs.
