To be recognized by APICS® as Certified in Production and Inventory Management [CPIM], the student must successfully pass five exams. The PHOENIX Fast Track Education Program prepares students for the exams in 4 sessions over a 4 to 6 month period. An APICS® exam is scheduled for the student and then taken shortly after each session. These are the sessions generally offered; see each location schedule for the order of that particular program. Occasionally, a fifth session covering Basics of Supply Chain Management is offered at an additional fee.

Basics of Supply Chain Management*
* If the Basics of Supply Chain Management class is not offered as a separate course, then the BSCM textbooks and syllabus are distributed at the third class.
To receive the CPIM Certification, students enrolled in the PHOENIX Fast Track Education Program will be required to pass all 5 examinations. It is strongly recommended that the student attend all four (or five depending upon the schedule) class sessions of the PHOENIX program and to follow the provided study curriculum.
None; if you are new to the field, you may want to take Basics of Supply Chain Management first - call to review your specific needs.
