APICS Southeast District Webinar Series presents
“Best Practices for Maintaining Your APICS Certification”
featuring Mr. Chris Barnes, CFPIM, CSCP, LSSYB President, APICS Atlanta moderated by Scott W. Luton, APICS Southeast District Staff
In early 2016 the APICS Atlanta Board realized, through happenstance, many members were unaware of the requirement to maintain certification every 5 years. As we further investigated this finding, we learned many people, although generally aware of the maintenance requirement, were unfamiliar with the basic guidelines for maintaining certification, and more importantly were not familiar with ways/sources to acquire maintenance points.
This webinar serves to outline the basic APICS certification maintenance requirements and uncover maintenance point sources in an effort to help you preserve the currency of your hard-earned APICS certification credentials.
