How would you like to learn?

Recognized as the standard of professional competence in production and inventory management, companies and designees rely on the APICS Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) to maximize ROI and increase customer satisfaction. 

Whether you are looking for information to get ahead in your career or preparing to take an APICS CPIM exam, We offer a variety of ways to learn.

To achieve the CPIM certification, you are required to pass two exams. CPIM Part 1—Basics of Supply Chain Management, and CPIM Part 2— Strategic Management of Resources, Master Planning of Resources, Detailed Scheduling and Planning and Execution and Control of Operations. Exam preparation will help give you insights into production and inventory management activities within a company's global operations. You can combine and tailor your learning options according to your individual learning style.
