Similar to the well-known FMH titles for physicians, the FSIE certificates remain valid in the long term as they correspond to generic IT professions.
This the response to the uncertainty that can arise by the dynamic nature of the IT profession. This uncertainty may make IT unattractive for one's own career path. The titles Expert FSIE are an investment protection for your tertiary IT education and practice efforts by providing a systematic continuing education scheme.
We publish the certified Experts FSIE™ experts in a publicly accessible and searchable register. This is a valuable tool for proving your expert knowledge.
In addition, a job market for positions of expert qualifications is planned. This will also be available for young graduates looking for positions to fulfil the practice requirements for becoming Expert FSIE™.

The FSIE does not itself offer education. However, we recommend continuing education events that allow certified Experts FSIE™ to stay up to date in their specialisation. These events are typically 1 - 5 days seminars targeted specifically at the audience of already certified experts. They provide high-grade updates for the methods and practices of the specialisation.
As we are just starting our operations, the list of events is still work in progress. Expect it to be right here in 2020!
BTW: Also note that we recommend and require advanced education courses. These are typically >=15 ECTS which corresponds to 50 - 60 days and are required to become an Expert FSIE in a specialisation. These are contained in the existing specialisation regulations.
Not only the IT profession is changing but also the location of work. While FSIE is focussed on the Swiss market, we also strive to support your career abroad. For this reason, we in progress to map our specialist titles to the european initiative of e-CF/eCompetences.eu. At a later stage, we plan to get recognised world-wide by IFIP/ipthree.
