To become certified, a candidate must pass an exam for all 5 of the CPIM modules. APICS recommends that candidates take the Basics of Supply Chain Management exam first and the Strategic Management of Resources last. The remaining modules can be taken in any order, but the Strategic Management of Resources should be taken last.
