FIS works with a range of training providers, which have been approved by the Association, allowing them to carry the approved training provider logo on their website and on any courses registered on FIS CourseSight. FIS continues to strengthen the network of Approved Training Providers and Further Education Colleges, all of which have to undertake and complete our rigorous application process.
