Accredited SFIA Training

The SFIA Foundation Accredits both SFIA Training and SFIA Training Providers. Training in the SFIA Framework and its use is the best way to gain a good understanding of the Framework and an insight into how it can be used effectively to deliver real benefits in enhancing the capability of an organisation through the management of the skills of its staff.

Introduction

Various Accredited SFIA Training offerings are available; further training options may be added in the future.

SFIA training is for people who have a background in the management of professional skills, whether relating to recruitment, deployment, assessment, development, remuneration, general resource management or in the enhancement of an organisation's capability through enhancing the skills that it has available.

As the scope of use of SFIA is continually increasing there will continue to be a need for both general SFIA training and more specific SFIA application training.  These are described below:

General SFIA Training

General SFIA training is intended to enable the delegate to gain an appropriate level of understanding about the SFIA Framework so that they can make use of it appropriately.  The levels of training can be broken down into individual modules or delivered as one integrated offering, this allows for flexibility in the delivery by the training provider.
