Our goal is to hold a class for each exam at least once throughout the year. Although it may help learning the material by starting with Part 1, the modules do not have to be taken in any particular order.
Other ways to prepare for the exams include: APICS Certification Review Workshops, online APICS CPIM review courses, APICS CPIM primary references, or APICS CPIM self-study.
