Because there is no failing, you don’t have to be brilliant to take a FISC. The outcome will be a certificate from the BSBI showing your level of skill, with advice about what sort of activity you are competent to undertake and what further studies you need if you wish to progress up the skills ladder.
Once you have taken a FISC, we take a couple of weeks to mark them and send you your certificate. We keep the results confidential, but you may publicise them to potential employers and colleagues if you like. Each certificate is signed by the chair of our Training & Education Committee, and it says what level you have attained and what you are qualified to do.
