Continuous Professional Development
The professional world has become not only dynamic but also very competitive. Significant changes and challenges can be observed in the Financial Markets environment and more specifically in the regulatory background. The Financial Markets environment is highly dynamic with development of new products and services aimed at increasing investment potential of an economy.
ICIFA has a duty to its members and the public at large in ensuring that the highest standards of professionalism are maintained by its members and this is done through the Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Programmes. Every member of the Institute is expected to actively participate in the programmes and functions and attain the minimum CPD credits required. CPD is concerned with systematic maintenance, improvement and broadening of knowledge, skills, personal qualities and professional ethics necessary for execution of professional and technical duties throughout the FA’s working life. The overall aim of CPD is to develop and enhance the value of the FA as a professional.
The CPD Credits are in two categories; structured and unstructured. The unstructured credits are earned from activities of other recognized institutions while the structured credits are earned from activities and functions that are organized by the Institute OR by other independent institutions accredited by ICIFA. The Institute is looking forward to partner with other institutions for purposes of accreditation.
Compliance with CPD requirements is compulsory for all ICIFA members.
