What are my options to complete the ASEM® SSGB?

In all cases, students receive a one-year ASEM® student membership and electronic versions of the Engineering Management Body of Knowledge (EMBoK®), Engineering Management Handbook®, and preparation guides for the CAEM®/ CPEM® exam and the EM SSGB exam. A voucher for the exam is included in the price, but Minitab® is not.  See the note below for details on Minitab® licenses and access.

Minitab® License Details

Minitab® software is accessible at most universities for degree seeking students and many corporations also have licenses available to employees.

  • 30-day free trial: For certification students who have time to dedicate to learning the analytical applications in the course, this may be a good option.  We suggest you complete the course videos, see the Minitab® examples (which are clearly illustrated with menu screens), review the Minitab® test prep guide, and then start your 30-day trial to verify your knowledge and take that portion of the test. https://www.minitab.com/en-us/products/minitab/free-trial/·       
  • Academic Discount:  If you are a full-time student and your university does not provide Minitab® for its students, you can access a 6 month ($32.99) or 12 month ($54.99) rental. https://www.minitab.com/en-us/academic/·
