CPIM Review Course Schedule (Legacy and new versions)

CPIM (Certified in Production & Inventory Management) certification requires professionals to study 5 different modules. APICS has transitioned the CPIM certification from 5 separate exams instead to needing to pass 2 exams.  You do not need a college degree to become CPIM certified. 

The first module is "Basics of Supply Chain Management", and is extremely popular, since it includes an excellent overview of materials management.  The BSCM course has been renamed "CPIM Part 1". 

The other 4 required CPIM modules are "Master Planning of Resources", "Detailed Scheduling & Planning", "Execution & Control of Operations", and "Strategic Management of Resources".  These 4 modules have been combined into the "CPIM Part 2" course and exam. 

More information about the contents of these courses can be found at: CPIM course contents
