APICS Certification Maintenance, Simplified!

You've asked—we've listened! Certification maintenance will be updated January 4, 2018 with a streamlined point structure and new point activities. Now it'll be easier for you to earn the points you need to maintain your credential.

The new point activities include: 

  • Reading relevant books or articles
  • Participating in relevant project management work for your employer
  • Participating in the APICS mentorship program
 

And to make it even easier, if you've completed activities that fall within the updated point structure, and are ready to submit your application now, you can include them in your submission.

We've added the new activities and their point structure to the maintenance qualifying activities section of the website.

You've worked hard to achieve your APICS certification, with the new streamlined application and point structure, you'll be able to earn the points you need, faster and easier.

Don't forget. Your APICS membership qualifies for six maintenance points per year.
