Individuals, who are not currently INCOSE ASEPs, CSEP, or ESEPs, are invited to take the INCOSE Certification knowledge exam at the International Workshop.
There is no fee for this exam. There are, however, some differences from the exam offered at computer testing facilities. The exam at the IW will be taken on paper rather than a computer. Results will be sent by email within four weeks of the exam completion.
Those who pass the exam will be allowed to use their results toward INCOSE ASEP or CSEP certification if they apply for that certification within a year.
No test participants are required to apply for certification, but those who do apply will have to pay all standard application fees and be INCOSE individual members.
On exam day, participants will need to provide photo identification and confirm their email address. No talking or reference materials are allowed during the exam, except for a translation dictionary for those whose mother tongue is a language other than English. Candidates whose mother tongue is not English may also have an additional thirty minutes to take the exam. They must request this extra time before the exam begins.
Information about the INCOSE knowledge exam based on the INCOSE Handbook version 4 was presented at IS 2015 and is published here.
