Questions on the exam were derived from the actual practice of technicians as outlined in the CCST Role Delineation Study and job task analysis. Using interviews, surveys, observation, and group discussions, ISA worked with technicians to delineate critical job components to develop test specifications to determine the number of questions related to each domain and task tested. This rigorous program development and ongoing maintenance process ensures that CCST certification accurately reflects the skills and knowledge needed to excel as an automation and control systems professional.
