What is the /biz/ consensus on APICS and their CPIM certification?

It sounds like a scam to me - I should know, since my mother is involved in the organization. They 'sell' courses to people (usually people in logistics management) in order to prepare them for a test (made and administered by APICS) to receive a certification (from APICS). I don't trust my mother telling me how 'great it is and how employers love seeing it on your resume and they think it is very prestigious!' since her job depends on selling these courses (plus the field I wish to enter has nothing to do with logistics).

From what I hear ya moms is probably on to something in regards to résumé building. It's nice to have but probably not that vital. People here will say not its not needed and they'd be right too. There are positions at my company that require it to progress. If you can get it just get it.

I have the CSCP certification. The certification is desireable by employers during the hiring process, but I didn't learn much in the way of new skills because of it. The credits to keep it current are annoying, but not a huge problem.

Bottom line, if you're looking for a job it's good to have, if not it really doesn't do you much good.

It's useless.

Unless you're planning on entering the very specific supply-chain management (which most people are promoted into, rather than entering), pretty useless. Plus what they teach is pointless and basic stuff which they like to disguise with long words to make it appear complex.

In other words, pretty much a scam.

This. Right on the nose.
