CUSP candidates are strongly encouraged to prepare for the CUSP exam by reviewing the sample questions and other materials available below. While the CUSP exam is designed to test a candidate’s competence as a utility safety professional gained through experience and training throughout his/her career, reference materials are provided below to study as needed.
Develop a study plan several months before you plan to take your CUSP exam. This could include self-study, finding a study buddy or group, attending the optional Online Prep and Onsite Review, studying suggested reference materials and articles, or other methods. The key is to have a study plan and follow through with it.
This is the matrix by which the CUSP BLUE exam was developed. It is expected that a Utility Safety Professional will meet and/or exceed the required knowledge in these subject areas.
