APICS’ internationally recognized certification programs, CPIM and CSCP, are known globally as standards of competence in business and manufacturing.

The CIRM and CPIM 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. The CSCP program contains four modules with only one final exam.
