Maintaining your APICS certification just got easier‏

New APICS Certification Maintenance Application Process

As an APICS designee, you know that you must meet certain requirements to maintain your certification. This is to preserve the integrity and value of APICS certification programs. The APICS certification maintenance programs allow designees to acquire ongoing knowledge in their field and demonstrate a commitment to lifelong learning through professional development activities.
As of January 13, 2014, you will be able to maintain your certification with a simpler application process. While maintenance requirements remain the same, you will no longer be required to report detailed maintenance activities to APICS in the online application. Instead, you will be required to submit documentation only if you are audited by APICS. In addition, you will be immediately notified if you are being audited or your application has been accepted.
Note that you may now apply for certification maintenance at any time, rather than having to wait until the fifth year of your certification. In addition, your new maintenance due date will be five years after your current maintenance due date.
These improvements are designed to simplify the maintenance process and encourage more designees to maintain their hard-earned certifications. Additional information about the APICS certification maintenance process can be found on our website.
Thank you for your support of APICS certification programs. If you have questions, please contact certification@apics.org.
Best regards,

Lisa Sallstrom, PMP Director, Certification
