4. What if I fail the assessment?

We do not believe in percentage based examinations. Our idea is to encourage learning with positive and regular feedback, at each stage. We also encourage our learners to self reflect on what went wrong, and how they could have done better. Accordingly our assessors provide detailed and unbiased feedback and ask the learners to take corrective action.

5. I am not comfortable in English language. Can I still take this qualification?

The idea of international accreditation is portability which means a student in India gets trained according to international standards and is able to work anywhere in the world. As you would like to acknowledge, english is a universal language of business, information and communication. So, understanding of english language along with clear communication and written is a pre requisite.

6. How are classes delivered?

Under the RPL scheme, given the covid-19 scare and situation, all is 100% online

7. How does it compare with other international certifications?

No international qualification gives classes or support like we do. Most of them are just popular and may not be accredited. Even if they would be accredited, you may not get international portability so FSSA is THE BEST CHOICE for anyone wanting to work in INDIA and all the countries mentioned above in point 1.
