APICS Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) - Part 1
The APICS CPIM (Certified in Production and Inventory Management) programme focusses on an organisation’s internal operations taking an in-depth look at the production and inventory activities within the internal operations of a company providing a comprehensive view of materials management, master scheduling, forecasting, production planning and much more. To date, over 100,000+ professionals are CPIM certified.
To earn the APICS CPIM designation, operations management professionals must successfully pass the CPIM Part 1 and Part 2 exams. However CPIM part 1 and part 2 can be taken in isolation if the full APICS CPIM designation is not required.
Please note, sessions 1 and 2 will be taking place on the 13th & 14th May, sessions 3 and 4 will be taking place on the 20th & 21st May. All sessions are mandatory.
