Why Seek the CPIM Designation?

The pandemic caused a major shift in consumer demand and put a spotlight on supply chain vulnerabilities. Planning is now more important than ever, and the new Certified in Planning and Inventory Management (CPIM) reflects that.

With a CPIM certification, you will develop the competencies they need to successfully work across all functions of the supply chain. In addition, you'll have the knowledge to better respond to supply disruptions, demand variations, and manage supply chain risk.

Commit yourself to a higher level of education, boost your career prospects and help any organization stay competitive in today’s economy.  Interested in seeing if the CPIM is a good fit for you? Test-drive the content, free for 30 days.
