INCOSE’s original plan was to release the new SE Handbook version 4 (SEHv4) earlier this year, right after ISO 15288 standard, Systems and software engineering-System life cycle processes, was released. Which was supposed to be in January 2015. Well as they say, “Best laid plans of mice and men.” Turns out the ISO 15288 standard wasn't published until 15 May 2015 so INCOSE will not be publishing SEHv4 until mid July. Just in time for the INCOSE SE International Symposium.
Even though this delay may be frustrating, there is a silver lining … because of the delay in publishing SEHv4, INCOSE will now continue offering the current exam, based on SE Handbook version 3.2 through 31 December 2015. This will be the default exam for all candidates unless you submit a formal Request for the vs 4 exam.
So we no longer have the June 30th cut-off date hanging over our heads. We now have a December 31st cut-off date hanging over our heads. Read about the changes at the INCOSE website and the INCOSE Certification Blog
