APICS CPIM Instructor-Supported Online Classes

APICS CPIM

In partnership with the Association of Supply Chain Management (ASCM), FVTC offers APICS CPIM courses in an online, instructor-supported format. Participants are assigned to an APICS certified instructor who supports their learning activities during the course.

The Certified in Planning and Inventory Management (CPIM) coursework provides a common basis for individuals and organizations to evaluate their inventory management. The program has helped individuals and their organizations become more productive and competitive because it is designed to test candidates’ in-depth knowledge of a variety of subjects specific to planning and inventory management.

Why pursue APICS Certification?

APICS certification programs open the door to job opportunities and your career advancement. Based on the 2020 ASCM Supply Chain Salary and Career Survey Report, APICS-Certified individuals earn 21% more than their non-certified peers. ASCM members on average have a higher pass rate for APICS certification exams compared to non-members.

In addition, more internet-savvy manufacturing companies are demanding APICS certification on applicant resumes.

The CPIM and CSCP programs specialize in results-oriented education, which means that you will walk away with more than the professional credentials that you have earned. You will learn to apply what you have learned in your own job, giving you enhanced credibility and recognition as a valued resource within your company.

Why now? Let's face it, with the hectic world we live in, there will be no perfect time to begin certification. Now is the time to roll up your shirt sleeves and dive in!

Ready to begin? It's easy! The best way to begin is by enrolling today in the CPIM Part 1 (Certified in Planning and Inventory Management) course for the CPIM certification. We're here to help.

Contact us at APICSOnline@fvtc.edu if you have any questions on how to begin your CPIM certification.

Time Commitment & Expectations

This Instructor-Supported Online APICS CPIM Part 1, and Part 2 courses are considered a public offering. In this delivery method, students’ progress through the course schedule independent of each other. There are no required activities that all students must attend at any one particular point in time. In other words, you may progress at your own pace as long as you stay current with the course syllabus and meet the deadlines each week.

Students are assigned to one instructor throughout the course. This online class does not have a required meeting time each week. The Instructor-Supported Online course is asynchronous, so you may complete the assignments on your own schedule during the week.

Note: Although the instructor support ends after 10 weeks for CPIM Part 1, and 14 weeks for CPIM part 2, students are given four additional weeks access to this course. The last four weeks are designed for review or self-study to prepare for the APICS exam. Students are expected to complete a chapter a week and most students spend between 2 and 5 hours per chapter.
