CPIM Part 2

Update of CPIM materials from version 6.x to version 7.x Spring 2021

We will guide our clients through this to ensure a smooth transition. The final day to purchase v 6.x Learning System is planned for 25th February 2021, with v6 exam credits available for purchase until 30th March 2021 - meaning an ATT conversion deadline of 30th September, (Re-sits after that date will be the v7 exam) and the v6 exam being discontinued April 2nd 2022. Whilst there are pre-sale opportunities for CPIM v7.0 materials from the end of Feb, the CPIM v7.0 exam launch date is 31st March 2021. This long overlap period should ensure peace of mind for any candidates who have embarked upon their CPIM journey late 2020 or early 2021 using v6.x materials.
