Learning options for any study style


Ideal for self-starters and those with unpredictable schedules. The self-study option means you can learn on your own anytime, day or night — whatever best accommodates your schedule. The CPIM Learning System includes both printed books and access to an online, interactive platform.

Purchase the CPIM Learning System


Ideal for individuals who prefer a structured study environment. Instructor-led classes are offered by approved ASCM partners worldwide. These traditional classes combine the Learning System with the guidance of an APICS-recognized instructor and provide valuable peer discussion and networking. 

Find an instructor-led class near you


Ideal for those who want instructor support but can’t attend classes at a set time. Instructor-supported online classes are offered through Fox Valley Technical College. You will be assigned one instructor for the 16 week course, but there is no required meeting time, so you can complete assignments on your own schedule.
