Your CPIM journey will begin with the CPIM Part 1 Learning System. The CPIM Learning System is a comprehensive program that combines print and/or online reading materials, online practice tests and interactive study tools to ensure you’re prepared for the CPIM Exams.
Developed by APICS, this streamlined program reflects the new CPIM Part 1 and Part 2 exam structure and the current CPIM Exam Content Manual (ECM). Your day is full of critical decisions, so we made this one easy with a customized study plan to identify and focus on topics that need review.
CPIM Part 1 – Start your path toward CPIM certification. Prepare for the CPIM Part 1 exam with almost 600 pages of reading material and over 500 online practice questions.
CPIM Part 2 – Complete your CPIM preparation journey. Prepare for the CPIM Part 2 exam with approximately 900 pages of reading material and over 1500 online practice questions.
WHAT IS NEW? The legacy CPIM program has been streamlined to meet the needs of today’s busy supply chain professionals and workplace – pass two exams instead of five to become a CPIM. The updated CPIM program delivers the same knowledge as the legacy program but condenses the time it takes to prepare for the CPIM exams with CPIM-focused content, learning tools and practice questions.
