The FSIE is part of the Swiss ICT associations landscape and member of digitalswitzerland. For the certifications we partner with the well-established organisation SAQ - Swiss Association for Quality.
Because our initiative targets the tertiary educated ICT professionals, we have a strong partnership with the SI - Swiss Informatics Society and its section SISR of the french speaking part of Switzerland.
Independence from specific education providers or companies is central. FSIE is only committed to the quality standard of the recommended advanced and continuing education events. Nevertheless, all IT education providers are welcome as partners (mutual recommendation, web linking, possibly sponsoring).
The FSIE seeks partnerships with all IT education providers (universities and others) providing tertiary-level courses and events as well as with IT companies and associations.
Note that the FSIE membership is exclusively available for natural persons. This shall warrant the independence from commercial forces and ensure the quality of the FSIE titles and activities.
For legal entities, the FSIE offers the following cooperation forms:
Partnership: this is for free and consists in mutual web-linking, recommendation and news/events forwarding.
Silver sponsoring: 2'000.00 CHF per year, it includes 5 continuing education event accreditations. If you are also an employer it also includes 10 job position submissions and 2 memberships, i.e. you can nominate 2 persons to become members and profit from the members benefits.
Gold sponsoring: 5'000.00 CHF per year, it includes 10 continuing event accreditations, 30 job position submissions and 6 memberships.
Please contact us.
By the decisions on 18th of March 2021 by the presidents conference of the SI and on 25th of April 2021 by the general assembly of the FSIE, FSIE has joined the SI as an grouping. FSIE remains a Swiss association according to Art 60 ZGB but as a grouping work much closer with the SI and its other groupings.
The FSIE is closely linked to SISR with joint board memberships. Because of the importance of the high-quality continuing development of IT teriary-level professionals, SISR promotes this initiative for continuing professional decelopment.
