    Recognition of your achievements is critical when you seek employment. The ISA CST Associate program will give you a recognition that demonstrates your commitment to a career in automation and control and shows that your educational accomplishments are only the beginning.

    An ISA CST Associate will have specialized work experience and/or an educational background in instrumentation and control or a related field and be able to successfully complete an ISA examination. The ISA CST Associate examination is designed to measure a fundamental understanding of knowledge in instrumentation and control.

    Examination Application Fee: $85.00 for ISA Members; $95.00 for Non-Members

    Note: This recognition program is not a certification. Those who take the CST Associate examination may be interested in pursuing the ISA Certified Control Systems Technician® (CCST® ) program, once the education and/or experience level reaches five years. Successfully completing the CST Associate exam equals one year of education good toward the Level I CCST requirements. For more information on the CCST program, click here.
