Got mine this morning too!
It also depends on how frequently the course will be updated with fresh materials or how frequently the method of assessment may change.
Creating an award is a fine line between something that is flexible enough to change with the times, but steady enough to keep everyone happy.
Sorry about the delay in getting the certificates issued. It has been an issue with the exam board who have taken 7 months to approve and issue the certificates. All of the backlog certificates should have gone to your home addresses about a week ago. From this point onwards, they should be received much more promptly after you take the exam. There will occassionally be peaks such as the summer examinations where it takes a little longer for them to issue these certificates, but normally they should be fairly rapid.
If you get any further excessive delays, please let me know and I will take this up with the exam board directly.
Hi Tony and Ken,
Thanks for the questions and responses. Phase 1 for the new FITS qualifications was to get the practitioner and advanced qualifications in place. We now have both of these up and running. The next phase is to introduce a CPD scheme where everyone is kept up to date on important new initiatives, resources and tools. The inital discussions have been around the qualification being valid for 3 years with an annual CPD update. This is still work in progress and Tony will be actively involved in getting this right.
SQA have taken a lot longer than we expected to get the certificates agreed and sent out but I understand from them that they have all been sent out now. I certainly received my certificate last week having sat the exam myself to test the system out. If anyone still hasn't received a certificate can you please reply here or go to the FITS website and submit a comment through our contact form and I'll get it sorted immediately. (I can't add an email address yet because I don't have enough posts on here).
