Banking course to launch soon

The Institute of Bankers Malaysia (IBBM) launched a training course in Cambodia yesterday aimed at developing standardised skills in the country’s rising banking sector.

Tay Kay Luan, chief executive officer of IBBM, said the course, which offers certification in the global Chartered Bankers system, will bring trainees into a network of successful professionals.

“We want to improve and increase the learning outcome of the student,” Luan said. “It is important that whatever we teach them, they can apply in the workplace and at the same time can improve the performance of the bank.”

IBBM will work with the Cambodian Institute of Banking, a group owned by the Association of Banks in Cambodia, to develop the curriculum. Students have to pass three levels, comprising nine modules.

Modules in the first level cost $250, with prices increasing in the second and final level.

A launch date for classes has not been set.
