ASCM performs a job task analysis (JTA) on each certification at least every five years to ensure we follow certification best practices and relevancy in the field. Based on our recent JTA, the
content outline for the CPIM courseware and exams has been updated, and a new version, CPIM 7.0 (includes Part 1 and Part 2) will be released for purchase on February 1, 2021.
As an individual currently pursing your CPIM, we are working to make this transition as easy as possible. Through April 2022, we will be offering both exam (6.0 and 7.0) versions, providing
plenty of time to complete the certification process, regardless of where you are in your certification journey.
The timeline below outlines key dates relevant to this transition process. There are no exceptions for extending these deadline dates.
