how to prepare for the CPIM certification exams

Students must past 2 exams (CPIM Part 1 and CPIM Part 2) to achieve CPIM Certification:

    Option 1:
    Attend an instructor-led class sponsored by APICS Twin Cities Chapter (see class options & registration details below)  Class fees include the CPIM Learning Systems

    Option 2:

    Purchase the CPIM Part 1 and Part 2 Learning Systems (includes books & 1-year license for online study tools) and self-study (order self-study materials here)

  2. Purchase the Exam Credit and Schedule Your CPIM Part 1 and Part 2 Exams at local testing center or proctored from your home or office.

The Twin Cities Chapter offers local, instructor-led review courses starting 2 to 3 times/year to help you prepare for the exam.  Current Course Details are included on the following Registration Form and listed at the bottom of this page.
