Whether you are going for a Certified Systems Engineering Professional (CSEP) or an Associate Systems Engineering Professional (ASEP),  you need to pass a two-hour, 120-question, multiple-choice exam based on the latest version of the INCOSE SE Handbook. This course helps prepare potential candidates for this demanding exam by making them familiar with the content of the SE Handbook.

These tests are a valuable resource for the student and can be repeated as many times as the student desires.  
By the end of the course, the student will:
  • Be well prepared for the INCOSE SEP exam.
  • Understand INCOSE CSEP application process.
  • Have a good grasp of the fundamentals of Systems Engineering, including the understanding of systems engineering management and systems engineering processes, from the INCOSE perspective.
