FCSI TA is the professional organization for foodservice consultants in the United States, Canada, and Latin America.

How To Register

Once your Senior Associate application has been approved, you will be sent registration information via email explaining how to access the exam. An approved FCSI TA application does not automatically register you for the next exam; you must register separately for an online exam date.

Your Senior Associate membership remains valid for three years after the date of approval. If you have not completed the Professional Membership Process during that three-year window, you will be required to reapply for Senior Associate membership in order to continue with the PMP.
