Self-Paced Online Prep Course Exclusively for CUSP

Produced by the Incident Prevention Institute, CUSP Online Prep is a self-paced course designed to enhance test-taking skills and help learners to prepare for the Certified Utility Safety Professional (CUSP) exam. The CUSP certification program is the only program that offers safety credentials to utilities, related contractors and communication providers.

In addition to the online prep course and practice exams, there is a LIVE online study session each month where learners can engage directly with a course facilitator.

CUSP Online Prep is a complement to the onsite Utility Safety Leadership Review and was developed to provide learners with a higher degree of confidence and competence in taking the exam.

CUSP Online Prep Components:

  • Pre-Test
  • Preparation and Testing Strategies
  • Live Facilitated CUSP Test Prep Webinar
  • Practice Domain Quizzes
  • Assess your readiness with the CUSP Simulated Exam

The USOLN does not require a CUSP candidate to take any education or training in order to take the CUSP exam. It does not recommend or endorse any particular CUSP exam prep or review course. CUSP Online Prep was developed independently from the CUSP exam. It does not guarantee that you will pass the CUSP exam.
