Course Enrollment Requirements/Recommendations

The student must be at least 18 years of age with a minimum of a high school diploma.  There are no prerequisites are listed for these courses.  The certification exams are not administered by the APICS Granite State Chapter, they are managed by APICS Corporate through authorized PearsonVue testing centers.

Reconfigured Program (Effective starting July 1, 2017)

The APICS Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) credential is being updated in format, not content.  The same high quality content from the legacy CPIM program is going through a course reconfiguration to two courses and exams. 

CPIM – Part 1

Formerly known as the Basics of Supply Chain Management, this course covers the basic concepts to complete the flow of materials in a supply chain from suppliers to customers in manufacturing, distribution, service, and retail industries.  This includes the fundamental relationships in the design, planning, execution, monitoring, and control that occur. 

CPIM – Part 2

With the reconfiguration APICS has taken the four detailed and strategy modules and streamlined them into a single course and exam that examines the planning and execution hierarchy from high level planning to detailed shop-floor management.  Examining in greater detail the concepts presented in Part 1 of the CPIM series, this module provides a framework for planning and decision making that examines the strategies and their implications on the operations functions throughout the supply chain.

The Reconfigured CPIM Course

The APICS Granite State Chapter offers CPIM exam preparation courses to provide a structured and collaborative learning environment for candidates to successfully learn the material presented in the CPIM courseware and prepare for the exam.
