This is what one of our customers had to say:

“As an IT Consultant/Director I was looking to affirm and improve my knowledge of skills & competency frameworks. I already had some exposure of SFIA and I wanted to learn more. I signed up to the Foundation Level Training Course via ValidateSkills. The course was pitched at the right level for a foundation, and the online training & videos were very professional and easy to follow. The process from start to finish was seamless and my certificate was promptly issued. I now feel more informed and confident when discussing skills & competency frameworks with my clients. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to gain a foundation knowledge of SFIA.” Danny Stretch Eztechnologies

SFIA Skills Endorsement Certification

We offer individuals the opportunity to participate in a skills endorsement programme using the SFIA framework as its underlying principle. Using our SFIA Foundation approved online skills assessment tool ITSA, along with a personal skills interview with one of our approved SFIA consultants, by the end of the programme you will have a certificate noting your technical knowledge aligned to the SFIA Framework awarded by a registered SFIA Consultant and Trainer. This is a highly sought-after endorsement that will aide in such uses as job applications and generally standing out from the crowd.


Across the world, and to hundreds of individuals and organisations, we offer and have successfully delivered a wide-range of training courses to people at all stages of their SFIA journey.
