Community college and university students (i.e., UT Dallas’s students), do not received books and related materials since the registration fee is nominal. If you would like to purchase books/materials, then you should consult with the instructor during the first class session and then purchase directly from the APICS or from the APICS North Texas website.

NOTE: Individuals and working professionals who do not hold student status and interested in APCICS prep courses should contact APICS North Texas for registration and books.

Typically, students can finish the prep courses within six months (see course schedule).

Students must register through APICS’s website and take the exams accordingly. Upon passing the exams which will be administrated by an external organization such as Pearson, the APICS will award the ertificate to students directly.

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

Well, the prep courses provide you with knowledge that prepares you to take the APICS 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.

No, the registration fee covers the instructional hours only and not the exams. Students are responsible for the cost of APICS exams. We strongly recommend students to become a member of APICS to get discounts for exams as well as other valuable information and services. College and university students can become a member of APICS for free (visit APICS North Texas for more up-to-date information about membership).

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