CUSP candidates must pass the base exam and at least one endorsement exam to become certified. The CUSP base exam consist of 100 multiple choice questions. In addition, all CUSP candidates will be asked to select an endorsement exam from the following utility work environments:
Each endorsement exam consists of 30 multiple choice questions. There is an additional fee if a candidate elects to take more than one endorsement exam. For more information, visit this page. A CUSP credential holder can elect to take an additional endorsement exam at a later date to add this endorsement to their certification.
The CUSP exam content is based on FEDERAL standards, not state or company standards.
