Date & Time: Wednesday, April 29, 2015. Begins at 6 p.m. – (must be in your seat no later than 6:30 p.m. in order to take the exam).
Location: ISA’s headquarters located at 67 T.W. Alexander Drive, Research Triangle Park (Durham), NC. 27709.
# of Participants: Limited to 25.
Time involved: Up to 3 hours will be given to take the exam but test takers will probably only need half of that.
To Register: Send an email to Tina Ward at Tward@isa.org with “Beta Test” in the subject line.
Exam Content: The exam consists of 150 (4-option) multiple choice questions. It is a combination of IT (information technology) and OT (operational technology) concepts at a 2-year on the job or college experience level.
Exam Difficulty: The pilot exam is written at a 2-year on the job (in an IT or OT mission critical field) experience level. However, it includes multiple disciplines (IT & OT) and we do not expect that test subject will be experienced with all the content areas. We will use the data received from the test takers to make necessary adjustments to the exam.
Incentives: In appreciation for participating in the exam process ISA will give each participant:
- A $100 Visa gift card (mailed with exam score)
- A full report showing the domain level breakdown of how they did on the exam and their overall score.
If they pass the pilot exam then they will receive a complimentary Certified Mission Critical Professional (CMCP) certification once the program is launched in October of 2016.
