CPIM Certification

The APICS Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) program provides you with the ability to understand and evaluate production and inventory activities within a company's global operations.

NEW for 2017-18!  APICS is pleased to announce the Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) program will be reconfigured to better serve the needs of the supply chain workforce. Changes to the program are based on direct feedback from our members and reflect APICS’s ability to evolve along with supply chain management.

The new configuration will:

  • Move from a 5-module exam configuration to a 2-module exam configuration


  • Bring the CPIM program more in line with the format and delivery expectations of other APICS certification products


  • Address content overlap between modules


  • Streamline the preparation process and improve efficiency of the APICS CPIM designation


The Twin Cities Chapter will offer both the "Legacy" Review Courses and the "New 2-Part" courses in 2017-18.  However, the Legacy Courses will only be offered ONE final time this year. 

Individuals who have passed the BSCM exam will have the option to complete certification by passing the 4 Legacy Exams or by switching to the New program and taking the Part 2 Exam. 

Individuals who have studied for the BSCM Exam, but have not passed the exam yet should be aware that the last day to purchase or schedule a BSCM Exam is on Thursday, August 31, 2017 and the last day to take the Legacy BSCM Exam is on January 7, 2018.

The final Chapter-Sponsored, Instructor-led classes will be offered Summer 2017, Fall 2017, and Winter 2018. Check the schedule of classes below to avoid missing the class(es) you may need to complete your CPIM Certification!
