ASUP, Inc. Membership Exam Please Note: This is the final step (step 3) of your membership application! You have 7 days to study the test guide (below) and to complete the exam, from the time you've submitted your membership application and liability release form. Your progress will be timed. Please allow yourself 1-2 hours to complete the entire exam. You may want to bookmark the page so you can access it when you have time to complete the exam: www.asupinc.org/quiz/membership-exam. The results to the exam will be emailed to ASUP, Inc. upon completion, and a copy will be sent to the email address you provide below. This is an open book test! (Answers can be found on the Website, Test Guide, Facebook Page, etc.) This exam requires a passing grade of 80%. Questions are randomly pulled from a pool of 200 questions. You will have three opportunities to take the test and receive a passing score before ASUP, Inc. will consider your application. Test questions can be researched using either the Test Guide PDF, online at www.asupinc.org or www.facebook.com/AsupInc.org. Not all answers are found on the test guide! You can use the search engine at that site to find the topics you have questions about. Once you have successfully completed the exam and your membership application has been accepted, you will be paired with a seasoned field investigator to serve as a mentor. You will be rotated in/out of investigations so that you will be given the opportunity to complete field assignments. New members are considered associate members for a minimum of 1year. Once the Manager of Field Investigations is convinced of their aptitude in the field, their name will be listed with the Director and they will be treated as regular members, upon his approval. Each new field assignment is made following the criteria below. First assigned are supervisors and those with special talents needed in that case. Second, there will be a selection of new members in limited numbers for training. After that, the Manager of Investigations will make a blanket call for those wishing to participate… this call via e-mail is on a first come, first serve basis and only tells you the general location of the case and if it is expected to require an overnight trip. It is important that you check your ASUP e-mail regularly to be sure you can participate. Failure to post your field reports from active cases, evidence, etc. on-time will prevent you from being considered for the next case. Regardless if you have nothing to report, a report must be submitted. If this becomes a routine behavior with continued late filings or no filings, it can lead to dismissal from ASUP, Inc. Good luck!
