Many participants on the ICFS course want their achievement recognised through our unique certification and qualification options. This will enable participants to demonstrate to employers, clients, or educational bodies what they have learned and achieved on the course.

We have two different ways you can demonstrate your achievement after completing the ICFS course:

  • Certification is optional and will take place after the fourth module. Our Certification Scheme has been designed and is audited by an independent body (ExMi of Sweden) and demonstrates to employers and clients that you have acquired the skills and competencies to lead futures orientated strategy projects including factor and trends analysis, scenario development, and strategy options development. Under the scheme, the course tutors assess each participant at the end of the programme against the Certification criteria. Those who meet the criteria will be able to describe themselves as “Certified Future Strategists”. Certification is only available for those who complete the ICFS course, is included in the course price and is valid for three years, after which you can apply for re-certification.
  • The ICFS course has also been accredited by the UK’s Chartered Management Institute as meeting the learning objectives of their Level 7 Award in Strategic Management and Leadership. This academic qualification is recognised by educational bodies across Europe under the EQF (European Qualification Framework) and in some cases can be transferred as points towards a larger qualification. To obtain the Award participants must submit project work which is independently assessed by examiners from the Chartered Management Institute.  The cost of this assessment is not covered by the course fee and is €150.
