Announcement for CPIM qualified individuals who have not maintained their certification :-

"The APICS CPIM Recertification Exam is a one-time opportunity for individuals whose CPIM credentials have expired. You now can reclaim your credential. Instead of taking all five CPIM exams again, candidates are able to renew their certifications by taking only one exam.

The new exam, which only ran until the end of 2011, included 30 questions taken from the following CPIM Modules: DSP, ECO, MPR and SMR and will have a total of 120 multiple-choice items delivered in a three-hour exam." Due to the success of the 2011 re-certification exam programme, and was offered again by APICS during 2014.

In house delivery to a team of people at your facility is the default method of APICS tuition, this allows your team to discuss the issues raised within the material. However, for very small companies with a very small operations planning team this is not always feasible, to this end we occasionally offer open / public courses aimed at those who prefer face-to-face tuition as opposed to a distance learning solution.

2017 exam window dates
18 – March to 6-May
3-June to 15-July
12-Aug to 30-Sept
28-Oct to 16-Dec
