APICS and CBT in 2014


APICS and CBT in 2014

APICS has signed a contract with Prometric and all exams will be conducted through CBT: computer based testing from 2014 onwards. December 14 of this year will therefore be the last P&P (paper and pencil) testing session outside of the United States.

Advantages of CBT :

  • More flexibility and choice as far as exam dates are concerned
  • Results will be known immediately after taking the exam, no more need to wait 6 weeks after the test date
  • Availability of numerous test centers all over the country

APICS has negotiated the opening of three windows of 4 to 6 weeks each : December to January, April to May and July to August. Candidates will be given an "authorisation to take an exam" valid for a certain period of time to discourage endless procrastination.

APICS will announce more information regarding registration prices, exact periods for testing windows and the list of Prometric centers that have agreed to run APICS' exams.
