Budget Worksheet

APICS CPIM Online Course, Materials and Tests

The course fee for each of the 5 classes = $550.00 for APICS Members or $595.00 for Non-Members. The
course fee is paid to Fox Valley Technical College.

All Materials and Exams are purchased directly from APICS. The materials marked with an X in the Required
column below are the materials that all students must purchased to participate in the APICS CPIM online course
through Fox Valley Technical College. The materials marked with an X in the Recommended column below are
strongly recommended for the course. Students who plan to take the APICS exams will benefit from buying the
recommended materials.

Columns labeled 1 – 5 represent the five APICS courses that make up the CPIM program. If an X appears in all 5
of these columns that means that the student will need to make that purchase 5 times. In other words, they will
need to buy a participant guide for each of the 5 CPIM courses. We recommend purchasing this participant guide
and enrolling for the online course at the same time. Be sure you have the most recent version to align with our
online courses.

Some materials are one-time purchases. You will find those materials marked with an X in the All column.
