Cost estimate for attending public classes:

CPIM

  • Early bird special! ---- The cost of the classes with APICS Atlanta considers several factors. The lowest cost is for members who pay during the early bird registration which ends 30 days before the class. The highest cost is for non-members who wait until less than 30 days to register and pay.

  • Estimated cost for CPIM classes ---- For 2016 budget purposes estimate between $3000 and $3500 to attend APICS Atlanta classes for all 5 modules which is between 10 and 11 days. The class registration includes the Participant Workbook, access to the CPIM OnLine Tools and access to the PreCrest learning system with extra questions and how to access the APICS Dictionary for free on mobile devices!

  • Exam costs - The 2016 CPIM exam cost in North America is $190 for members and $290 for non members. Keep in mind there are 5 exams. Retakes are full price. For budget purchases calculate $1000 for members and $1500 for non-members. Here is another opportunity to save money and become a member for $220 a year. 

  • Other costs --- If you have test anxiety and need additional reassurance, you may want to consider the APICS Exam Simulator which for members is currently $47 per module for a total of $235 and $67 for nonmember for a total of $335. This is not required but a "nice to have".

  • Total cost estimate --- All of these costs are an estimate and may change at any time and without notice. The total cost to obtain CPIM for APICS members is $4000 and non-members is $5000.
