The paper exam has the same format as the standard knowledge exam, with 120 multiple-choice questions in 120 minutes. In both cases, candidates will need an additional thirty minutes to show ID and receive instructions. Details on timing and locations are listed at each link. Please note if you are already Certified, you are prohibited from taking the exam again.
INCOSE’s Certification Program has worked with our computer exam provider, Prometric, to establish two aids for candidates who are not native English speakers. These individuals may request an additional thirty minutes of exam time (in addition to the standard 120 minutes) by submitting a Special Accommodations Request form to the INCOSE Certification Program office. All candidates are also now allowed to bring in a translation dictionary to their exam. This dictionary may not have any notes or modifications, as interpreted by the exam official. These benefits are also available for individuals taking the paper exam. The Special Accommodations Form is found here: /systems-engineering-certification/certification-forms#Special
Each candidate will be asked to read and sign a Candidate Agreement before being allowed to take the exam. The Candidate Agreement details appropriate behavior during and after the test. Questions on this topic may also be sent to email@example.com.
All candidates will use a "Scantron" to record their answers for the paper Knowledge Exam. A no.2 pencil must be used to fill in the "bubbles." Answers must be shaded in completely. Incomplete or light shading on the answer sheets may results in unscored questions. Please click on the link below to view a scantron samples (note: these are not the exact forms used for the exam):
