Certification Maintenance

Certification FAQs

Many CPIMs and CFPIMs are due for their 5-year recertification. In order to maintain your certification, you must update your Professional Development Journal, and submit it with your Certification Maintenance application and $75 or $150 application processing fee by your deadline. (more)

What's New

APICS is pleased to announce the official launch of the new, streamlined APICS Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) program. The new CPIM program requires that candidates pass two exams instead of five! The updated format delivers the same knowledge and skills as the legacy program, but has been restructured to meet the learning needs of today’s busy supply chain professionals. (more)
