Once your application has been completed, it's time to prepare for the exam.  SE Scholar has developed a unique approach to teaching the INCOSE SE Handbook which contextualizes the various Organizational, Project and Technical processes that are necessary to realized a “System-of-Interest.” 

Part of the Process Flow diagram that the students will use to understand the 26 SE Handbook Processes with the aid of a comprehensive Process Flow diagram, We will walk you through all 26 Processes from the SE Handbook, from the Project Portfolio Process to the Disposal Process, in a logical and sequential manner,  while covering the contents of the entire INCOSE SE Handbook.  Our on-line course includes study material and numerous quizzes as well as a sample exam. These tests are based on the structure of the INCOSE CSEP Exam, These tests are based on the structure of the  INCOSE CSEP Exam, thus providing the student with a familiarity and comfort level they’ll need to pass the Exam. These tests are a valuable resource for the student and can be repeated as many times as the student desires.   

Because the INCOSE CSEP Exam is used for the ASEP application as well, this course is also suited for those applying for their ASEP designation. This course is one of the best in the industry because of its comprehensive and logical approach.

At the end of the course the student will:

  • Learn the framework of the 26 Processes within the INCOSE SE Handbook.
  • Have access to dozens of practice Quizzes.
  • Start to appreciate the context of Systems Engineering
