Sustainable Energy Technologies Professional (SETP™)

Gordon Madsen CME President Trigen Solutions Inc.

Hi All Just wanted to reach out and mention that I have taken the FTI (Foundational Technologies Institute) exam for the 'Sustainable Energy Technologies Professional' (SETP) accreditation (and passed). The exam itself is not so bad at all. I found that the slide presentations from each of our course modules were of significant help and covered lots of which was on the exam. The other helpful tool is that FTI have practice quizzes that you can take before taking the actual final exam. I did a number of these until I felt I was comfortable to take the final; which ended up being no problem at all. Even if you haven't taken the full slate of U of A courses, (which I would encourage) you may give consideration to challenging the FTI exam.

Corporate Social Responsibility Professional (CSRP™)

I really liked taking the practice exam. I took it twice before doing the final exam and it made me much more confident going into the final exam. I recommend this.

Global Blockchain Professional (GBP™)

Approved Education Providers

Hrushikesh Gawade

Recommends the blockchain course / program from a FTI Approved Education Provider and the Global Blockchain Professional exam to others? The program was Excellent. The overall experience is very good and the education provider was very supportive.

MAHARAJ MANOHARAN

- Blockchain Project Management Professional (BPMP™)

A good learning experience. As I am passionate in Blockchain Technologies and in Project management for that last few years, this is very unique program for Project management in Blockchain Technologies. Very insightful and vendor neutral content, not emphasizing any particular platform (Hyperledger, Ethereum) or promoting Cryptocurrency and trading. I highly recommend it.

FTI does not sell courses or programs and our exams are based on the standards which represent the body of knowledge that is required for that subject.  

 

Is the exam accepted by Industry? Has the exam been developed by independent subject matter experts and does it encompass the needs and skills of Industry world-wide?

 

Foundational Technologies Institute (FTI) working in conjunction with industry experts, researchers and educational providers have established a process to measure students’ level of understanding through our comprehensive examination process.
