Why You Should Do BSCM Now!

What’s in it for You?

Students save money

  • Get $100 off the new CPIM Part 2 exam when you purchase the BSCM exam by August 31 and take the BSCM exam by October 31, 2017. ($100 off expires July 31, 2018).
  • The current BSCM exam costs less than the new Part 1 exam. If you wait to take Part 1, you will also need to purchase new study materials. Members can save a minimum of $585 if they do the exam now.

Students save time

  • Shorter exam time - only 3 hours with 105 questions rather than 3.5 hours with 150 questions for Part 1.
  • If candidates take the BSCM exam now, they will only need Part 2 to become certified.

One step closer to becoming a CPIM.



Survey Research

Fellow APICS Chapter members,

I hope this note finds you well. I am reaching out to you because I believe that you would be a great resource in participating in my survey research. 

I am pursuing this survey research as part of the requirements for my Ph.D. program in Systems and Engineering Management at the Texas Tech University, Lubbock. Therefore, the survey purpose is strictly academic. The questionnaire addresses my research project, investigating the effects of ERP systems on direct procurement in upstream asset-intensive industries. The study intends to collect survey data from individuals who have worked with ERP systems, while supporting upstream operations in an asset-intensive organization.

To access the survey, please follow this link:

I will be grateful to have you contribute to this study by participating in this survey as well as sharing the link if possible, to other potential survey participants.  In case you have any question with regard to this study, do not hesitate to contact me through phone or e-mail.

Wish you all the best!
