What: Certification Preparation Workshop is sixteen (16) one-hour virtual reviews of the SE Handbook Version 4 and tutorial material each week.
Why: INCOSE MGC is organizing a review workshop in preparation for a systems engineering knowledge exam. The knowledge exam is one of the requirements to become a Certified Systems Engineering Professional (CSEP): https://www.incose.org/systems-engineering-certification.
The written knowledge exam will be offered at a yet to be determined price (around $30 more or less). It is tentatively to be held on 17 December 2021 (stay tuned for more details on the written knowledge exam itself).
Who: The preparation workshop is open to anyone (INCOSE-MGC members and non-members). The low fee knowledge exam is available to anyone although priority given to members if space is limited. INCOSE Certification requires an active INCOSE membership and submission of application information and fee.
When: Certification Workshop planned every Thursday from 19 August to 9 December 2021 at 4:30pm Central Time. Sessions last 1 hour.
How: Some CSEPs/ASEPs are attending to provide discussion and advice on becoming certified.
