APICS is launching a new certification verification tool in July 2014. This online tool, which will be available publicly on the APICS website, is designed to comply with industry best practices for publicizing certification credentials.

APICS certification verification will:

  • Provide prospective employers and other stakeholders with a simple, easy way to verify certification status
  • Elevate the credibility of APICS certification in the marketplace
  • Protect the value of the credential for our designees.

You may send designees and prospects to the APICS certification verification page for information on this new service. Any updates and further details will also be announced on this page.

Expired or suspended status CPIM designees

As a reminder, the APICS CPIM recertification exam is now available. Only designees with suspended and expired APICS CPIM certifications are eligible. The exam will be offered February–December 2014 throughout the world on an on-demand basis.

This is an excellent opportunity for suspended and expired CPIM designees to reinstate their certification by taking one exam instead of the five normally required. The cost is the same as one CPIM exam; interested candidates must submit an Authorization to Test before scheduling the exam.

APICS District Web Sites:

APICS' more than 250 local chapters are divided into 9 geographic districts that span North America.  Each district elects a District Director and a District Manager through a special nomination committee made up of chapter presidents within the district. 

The district director’s primary function is to be a member of the APICS Board of Directors.  As a member of the Board of Directors; the district director provides recommendations and philosophical direction during the development of policies, procedures, and educational offerings to ensure they enhance the professionalism of operations management.

The district manager has a volunteer district support staff to assist with the development and implementation of chapter management training and two-way communication between APICS corporate and the local chapter.  These individuals serve on the District Manager Committee and provide support and guidance to enable chapters to meet the minimum standards in promoting the objectives of the Association.
