APICS CPIM Part 1 - On-line Review Course and Exam & 2nd Chance Exam - Spring 2021
APICS Brandywine Valley is pleased to offer this on-line, instructor led certification opportunity. This is an in-depth review to prepare you on your journey towards certification. You will receive 30 contact hours of review with a live instructor. To better facilitate your on-line learning experience, the course will be held twice a week.

ASCM performs a job task analysis (JTA) on each certification at least every five years to ensure we follow certification best practices and relevancy in the field. Based on our recent JTA, the content outline for the CPIM courseware and exams has been updated, and a new version, CPIM 7.0. The latest version of the CPIM Learning System will be used for this course.

The APICS Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) program is recognized worldwide as the standard in production and inventory control, a critical function within an organization for reducing costs and achieving a competitive edge. The CPIM designation is earned by successfully completing two exams demonstrating competency in production and inventory management. Through the CPIM preparation and exam process, you will gain knowledge, learn skills, and best practices required to execute, control and improve internal operations within the four walls of your company.

Days:             Monday and Thursday (20 sessions)
Times:           5:00 – 6:30 pm
Dates:            March 15 through May 27
                       (allows for 1 week off)
