APICS offers computer-based testing (CBT) for all exams. All appointments must be made at least 48 hours before the desired test date. A candidate may make an appointment as much as 60 days in advance of the test date. Testing time are made on a first-come, first-served basis. Some periods of the year may be heavily booked. Call to schedule your appointment well in advance of the date you wish to take the exam. Or if you prefer you can also register on line. Either way you are the only one who can schedule the exam so create a deadline for yourself and schedule the exam as close to the sixty day point as possible.
