What educational background or experience is required before applying for ASEP?
There are no education, experience, or reference requirements when applying for ASEP. You are not required to have a particular degree or take any preparation courses. You are required to be an individual INCOSE member.
How long may I be an ASEP?
The initial certification period for an ASEP is five years. You may then renew for an additional five years, an unlimited number of times. In order to maintain your certification, you must remain an individual INCOSE member and you must also earn and
document continuing education.
Do I have to become an ASEP before I can become a CSEP?
No, there is no requirement to start your certification path with ASEP. You may go directly to CSEP or ESEP. If you do start with ASEP, you will not have to retake the knowledge exam when you apply for CSEP. There is no benefit or discount when applying
for ESEP if you are already an ASEP.
Do I have to submit my knowledge exam results to INCOSE?
No action is required for you to get exam results to us; those come to us automatically from our exam providers or from your academic equivalency institution.
