New APICS Exam Registration Process
November 2013

As part of our commitment to provide more scheduling flexibility and improve the certification experience for all candidates, APICS has enhanced its exam delivery process.

We understand this is a change and many exam candidates were familiar with the previous way to register. Although announcements were made on the APICS and Pearson VUE websites, we realize that you may not have been aware of this update. We apologize for any confusion that this change may cause. We are here to help you successfully navigate the registration process.

What Candidates Need to Know

Effective November 1, 2013, before scheduling an exam, candidates will need an authorization to test (ATT). The process is fast and easy, but there are few items to note:

  • You must obtain the ATT from APICS before going to the Pearson VUE website
  • Your name on the ATT must match the identification you bring to the test center
  • The ATT is valid for one year
  • You will pay for the exam as part of the ATT process
  • Shortly after completing the ATT and payment process online, you will receive an email about how to schedule your exam

For more information on exam registration, please read the APICS Certification Bulletin that applies to your exam type.

We are very sensitive to the needs of our exam candidates and want to help you with any concerns caused by these changes to the registration process. If you have any questions, please contact APICS Customer Service at, or 1-800-444-2742 or +1-773-867-1777.

Thank You to DelTech
August 2009

A Big “Thank You” to Delaware Technical & Community College Stanton

As we move our courses to a new location, we also want to express our appreciation to the Delaware Technical & Community College Stanton campus.

The Southern Delaware Valley Chapter started running CPIM courses at DelTech in 2001. Bob Needs and his staff have been great partners, and our program would not have been successful without their help. Thanks for your help and support.
