What are CPIM and CSCP?
APICS developed two certifications to provide both depth (CPIM) and breadth (CSCP) in the body of knowledge. By passing standardized exams, individuals earn the right to use the CPIM or CSCP designation. The CPIM and CSCP programs each consist of five exam modules for which you can prepare with a number of APICS study materials, text and multimedia references, and instructor-led courses and workshops. Attending a workshop is not required, but it is very helpful.
