    Application instructions

    A certification of expertise is applied for using an application form in a specified form specific to each certification. A certification is verified for a limited period of validity, after which the certification can be renewed applying a lighter application procedure.

    The certification’s period of validity, certification requirements and applications form can be found at the web page of the certification in question, specified by expert designation. You can find the designation groups under each main group:

    More detailed application instructions are given in the application forms, as well as the secretariat organisation (in Finnish) that will provide additional information relating to the certification to be applied for.

    When applying for a verification of certification, the applicant will fill in the form and deliver it with the appendices required to the secretariat organization in question. The same application form can be used for applying a new certification, and its renewal.

    With the application, the applicant commits to adhere to FISE’s Code of Ethics (in Finnish). Education and training stated in the application shall be verified by the educational institutes or other training organisations. The certification board does not perform so-called AHOT procedure (identification and recognition of previously acquired expertise).
