Professional development points are obtained from activities that relate to the core areas of the APICS Body of Knowledge. We recognize that individuals are at various levels in their careers and provide multiple sources and a variety of professional development activities for maintaining APICS credentials.
Read the APICS Maintenance Handbook to ensure you are familiar with maintenance program policies and procedures prior to submitting your maintenance application. The handbook will help you determine which category your activities fall under and the number of points you can claim. A quick overview of maintenance requirements by certification is below.
Once you have reviewed the maintenance bulletin and requirements, maintain your credential in 5 Easy Steps.
An online certification verification tool is available to provide prospective employers and other stakeholders with a simple, easy way to verify an individual’s certification status.
