More than one person per company may apply to the program as long as each works in a different physical operation;
however, it is not preferred. The success of the FEI experience is rooted in a student's ability to comfortably share
thoughts and questions without hesitancy; therefore, two people from the same company and same location will not be
accepted into the same class. A second candidate from the same company only will be considered if there are seats
Applicants must submit the following:
Letter of recommendation from his or her sponsor (The sponsor's role is to recommend the student for the program,
be a mentor to the student and monitor the student's progress along the way.)
Applications for the next FEI class will be accepted beginning February 2018.
Enrollment is limited to the first 30 students who meet the criteria.
Tuition for FEI-9: TBD
NRCA members can pay a yearly rate, or they can save by taking advantage of the three-year repayment plan. (Nonmember rates are available.)
Payment is due upon acceptance into the program.
