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.
