CPIM and CSCP Exam Candidates:

As you may have heard, APICS is hard at work finalizing processes and tools to support the forthcoming APICS Global Exam Delivery (GED) deployment, which will move to computer-based testing for all APICS candidates worldwide. 

Pearson VUE

APICS is retaining Pearson VUE as its sole North American testing vendor. APICS has worked with Pearson VUE successfully for several years across North America and is confident that they will continue to provide optimal testing services as the sole North American testing provider.

Beginning in Q4 2013, APICS CSCP and CPIM exam candidates in North America will be required to obtain an Authorization to Test from APICS in order to schedule an exam with Pearson VUE. Authorizations will be issued through the completion of an online Authorization to Test request form found on APICS.org. 

2013-2014 exam dates

In response to demand, APICS will offer the following APICS CSCP exam windows in North America for 2013-2014: 

  • September 21, 2013 - October 26, 2013
  • November 30, 2013 - January 11, 2014
  • March 22, 2014 - May 10, 2014
  • July 5, 2014 - August 23, 2014
  • November 1, 2014 - December 20, 2014

Once the online Authorization to Test request form is launched, Authorizations to Test for APICS CSCP exams will be issued for a specific exam window, which you may choose at the time of request.

APICS CPIM exams will be delivered year-round; there will be no window restrictions. Once the online Authorization to Test request form is launched, Authorizations to Test for APICS CPIM exams will be valid for one full year from the date of issue.

Payment information

You may purchase exams through the New Orleans APICS chapter, in the form of an exam credit. When you log in to complete the Authorization to Test request form, the exam credit will automatically appear as a payment option. This process will replace the voucher program currently in use.
