Exam Locations in the United States, Canada, and Mexico
APICS testing is performed by a testing organization formerly known as ASI. Effective 8/22/02 "PROMISSOR" is the new name. It is the same organization--only the name is new. Telephone numbers and email addresses remain unchanged. The standard link to the ASI site is still operational, however, the user is automatically redirected to the Promissor web page. The new web page has the same procedures and options -- it just shows the new Promissor logo and the appearance is a little different. No content changes have been made.

To find the testing location that is most convenient for you, access Promissor.

College Credit
You can now earn college credit for passing CPIM and CIRM examinations. CPIM and CIRM examinations have received recommendations for credit by both the American Council on Education (ACE) and the New York State Board of Regents. These credit recommendations are intended to guide participating institutions in granting college credit to students who pass CPIM or CIRM exams.

Scaled Score
The Understand a Scaled Score document explains the use of a scaled score system for reporting test performance in the CPIM and CIRM programs.
