  • What is the cost of the CPIM Prep courses?

    The registration fee is $850 (non-refundable) for community college and university students only in which you receive at least 132 instructional hours (student ID will be verified in class). Individuals and working professionals who do not hold student status and interested in CPIM prep courses should contact APICS North Texas for registration.

  • How long does it take to finish all the prep courses?

    Based on the design, students can finish all five prep courses within six months (January thru July).

  • What certificate can I get after finishing the prep courses?

    Students must register (through APICS’s website) and take each exam as soon as they finish each module. Upon passing all five exams which will be administrated by an external organization such as Pearson, the APICS will award the CPIM certificate to students.

  • Do I need to attend all class sessions?

    Yes, it is strongly recommended to attend and participate in all sessions in order to gain the knowledge required to pass the exams conducted by APICS.

  • Can I pass the CPIM exams if I take the prep courses only?

    Well, the prep courses provide you with knowledge that prepares you to take the CPIM exams. However, participating in the class and not studying after the class would not help you in passing the exams. This means that students need to spend time and study outside of the class time to pass the exams successfully.

  • Does the registration cost cover the books or exams?

    The registration cost covers the instruction hours and not the books or exams. Students are responsible for the cost of each exam which is $135 for APICS members. We strongly recommend students to become a member of APICS to get discounts for exams as well as other valuable information and services.

  • Can I get a refund after I registered for the course?

    No, the fee for the CPIM prep course is non-refundable.
