How would you like to learn?
APICS has streamlined the Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) program to better serve the needs of the supply chain workforce - while maintaining the body of knowledge and integrity that has kept CPIM at the forefront of supply chain education. Whether you are looking for information to get ahead in your career or preparing to take an APICS CPIM exam, APICS offers a variety of ways to learn.
To achieve the CPIM certification, you are now only 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.
Learn on your own any time, day or night, to accommodate your demanding schedule. The APICS CPIM Learning System is a comprehensive professional development and certification preparation program based on the APICS CPIM Body of Knowledge. The system provides reading materials and interactive web-based study tools. Purchase the APICS CPIM Learning System and use it to independently evaluate your program and exam readiness.
