Is there a roster of Certified Systems Engineering Professionals available for distribution?
INCOSE maintains a list of the names, geographic areas (city, state, and country), and certification level of those recognized as Expert Systems Engineering Professionals, Certified Systems Engineering Professionals, and Associate Systems Engineering Professionals. That list is posted monthly on the main Certification page
How do I update my name, email address, mailing address, chapter, or company?
INCOSE members can update their information at any time via their account profile at incose.org. Changes may also be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
. It is important for all Systems Engineering Professionals and applicants to maintain a current email address with INCOSE in order to receive renewal notices and other information.
What education or degree is required for certification?
There is no required training or degree to apply for any level of certification. Many candidates apply for ASEP prior to earning a college degree. Candidates for CSEP and ESEP who have a college degree may submit with fewer years of experience than those candidates without a degree. Candidates with qualifying degrees (generally, four-year or graduate degrees in engineering, math, or science) have the lowest experience requirements for CSEP and ESEP. Qualifying degrees are described in CER-PROC-01
Certification Process Timing
How long do I have to complete my certification process?
You have one year from the time your payment or passing exam result is received initially in the INCOSE Certification Office to complete your certification. If the process is not completed within the one-year time period, the applicant will have to pay another application fee or take and pass the exam again (for ASEP and CSEP). Individuals are limited to 3 attempts at the exam per 12-month period.
How do I obtain an application for certification?
