exida FSP

The Functional Safety Practitioner (FSP) program is a certificate program that provides confirmation that an attendee shows competency by retaining the knowledge presented in various exida Academy Functional Safety courses.

The FSP program also provides an analysis of where the candidate’s strengths and weaknesses lie, helping participants judge their competency level if interested in obtaining a certification like the CFSP or CFSE.

How to Earn a FSP Certificate

The only way to earn a FSP Certificate is by attending an exida Academy training course and passing the subsequent examination or assessment that will be given at the conclusion of the course. Those who pass the exam or assessment will be awarded with a certificate from exida Academy that signifies competence in the associated field.

*Please note that a FSP Certificate is different from a Course Completion certificate that includes PDHs/CEUs. All attendees of a training course will receive a Course Completion certificate at the conclusion of the course.
