FSIE is a newly founded non-profit association and still in its startup phase. Therefore, some of the envisioned content and services are not yet in place, e.g. the job market and register of Experts FSIE.
The certifications are available and we appreciate your application. Also, we highly recommend that you become member and help us build a large community of IT professionals that gain, shape and evolve the title Expert FSIE.
The FSIE is organised with 3 main committees:
Then, each specialisation has its own Experts Board (optional) and Experts Commission - both elected out of the community of certified experts. The latter is responsible for the specific regulation and the examinations of the candidates.
The FSIE core team is presented below.
"Automated processes hold a lot of potential. Companies and organizations, but also individuals and society depend existentially on their development and quality. The professionals who plan, implement and ultimately manage these processes take on great responsibility. The FSIE provides the necessary platform for them to competently assume this responsibility after their initial training until they retire. As a non-profit association of experts for experts, the FSIE also ensures objective and neutrally evaluated feedback from practice. In this way, we continuously optimise best practices and training requirements, which is why I am committed to this cause intensively and with pleasure."

"UX and Interface Design are becoming more and more important to achieve good and useful software. I strongly believe that all involved in software development need a minimal understanding of the basics, and therefore support the idea of a qualification and certification in this domain. As a lecturer and practitioner, I feel qualified to give input to this task, and hope to help shape a good solution."

Ethics as well as continuing education are indispensable. With FSIE we are forming an excellent platform to effectively promote these topics and to let them flow into the development of Swiss IT.
As a member of FSIE and president of Professional Council I am committed to the fair and ethical implementation of FSIE bylaws and actively support the fundamental values of FSIE."
