Applying for Certification

ASEP Steps to Certification

There are 4 basic steps to becoming certified at this level

1. Be an INCOSE individual member

2. Pay the application fee

  • Payment is valid for 12 months. 
  • Fee is non-refundable and not a guarantee that you will be certified. 

3. Submit Form 1A Individual Application for ASEP 

4. Pass the INCOSE knowledge exam or equivalent

  • Exam results are good for 12 months. 
  • There is a separate fee to take the exam, collected by the exam provider. 
  • You are allowed to take the exam up to 3 times in a 12-month period. 
  • You may take the exam before or after completing the other steps. 

Once you complete all these steps, the INCOSE Certification Office will send you a congratulatory email. Your ecertificate will come from Accredible. You may also check your certification status through your member profile on the INCOSE web page.  The ASEP certification is valid for five years, with a requirement that you maintain your INCOSE individual membership. Before the five years expire, you must submit renewal documentation and fee. Your renewal will also be good for five years.  


The preferred method is to download the application form from our website, here:www.incose.org/systems-engineering-certification/certification-forms If you cannot download the form, email certification@incose.org.
Your application will not be processed without the correct fee. You will be notified if the funds submitted are insufficient.
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.
