For those of you who joined us at the Holiday Networking Party, it was GREAT to see you! It is always such an elegant event and a wonderful opportunity to connect with friends and colleagues during the holiday season. Lots of excellent information shared, good spirits, good food and a good time was had by all. The NOSH Board also wishes to extend heartfelt thanks for the generous gifts donated to TOYS FOR TOTS at our Holiday Networking Event. As always, it was a very successful drive.

Certification Maintenance

Certification FAQs

Many CPIMs and CFPIMs are due for their 5-year recertification. In order to maintain your certification, you must update your Professional Development Journal, and submit it with your Certification Maintenance application and $75 or $150 application processing fee by your deadline. (more)

What's New

APICS is pleased to announce the official launch of the new, streamlined APICS Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) program. The new CPIM program requires that candidates pass two exams instead of five! The updated format delivers the same knowledge and skills as the legacy program, but has been restructured to meet the learning needs of today’s busy supply chain professionals. (more)
