Basics of Supply Chain Management
April 22, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 4:30 pm
The Certified in Production & Inventory Management (CPIM) certification program is being reorganized. You currently must pass five examinations to obtain a CPIM. The average length of time it takes is two years, which many people find discouraging.
APICS is reorganizing the CPIM program around two examinations. The first examination is equivalent to the current Basics of Supply Chain Management exam. The upper level exams – Master Planning of Resources, Detailed Scheduling & Planning, Execution & Control of Operations and Strategic Management of Resources – are being combined into one advanced exam. The result of this change is you will only need to pass two examinations to obtain a CPIM. This should allow participants to obtain a CPIM much faster than today.
The APICS South Florida Chapter is supporting this move by offering the Basics of Supply Chain Management Certification Review Course beginning in April. By taking this class and passing the Basics exam, it will count as passing the 1st of the two exams of the new CPIM configuration. We will offer the 2nd CPIM class – yet unnamed – when it is available in the Fall of 2017.
We are offering two sections of the Basics of Supply Chain Management class:
- Thursdays – April 20, 27 & May 4, 2017 at the South Florida Manufacturers Association (SFMA) Training Facility in Broward County at 1000 W. McNab Road, Pompano Beach, FL 33069
- Saturdays – April 22, 29 & May 6, 2017 at the Courtyard by Marriott Miami West/ FL Turnpike at 11580 NW 105th Street Miami, FL 33178
The registration deadline is April 14th. Order now to receive the Basics of Supply Chain Management books early and begin preparing for the class.
