This one-day course provides you with the detailed knowledge and practice that you need to pass the CSEP Acquisition examination. CSEP Acquisition Prep is designed to complement CSEP Preparation - Consider taking them together. The CSEP acquisition is a extension to CSEP certification and requires no additional experience and education only passing an exam based on chapter 4 of the defense acquisition guidebook. The exam is only 60 questions and 1 hour and can be taken the same time as the 120 question 2 hour CSEP exam or at a separate time. Advantages of taking both course back to back is further comfort with the process, exam type and environenment. The CSEP is generic and not using DoD terminology so DoD person make sense to take both. Passing CSEP acquisition exam is judged by Defense Acquisition University to be equivalent to taking SYS 101 and SYS 201 courses. Taking both CSEP exams at same time as I did is confusing due to terminology differences. We would suggest taking CSEP acquisition exam about 2-3 weeks later than CSEP so one can crash on the DoD vs. generic terminology, DoD SE policy and suggested activities in DOD per acquisition phase. The other advantages of taking closer together stay in exam mode and not having to redo education and expererince paperwork.
