The Certified Bank Director programme is designed for executive and non-executive directors of the main and subsidiary boards of banks, new and emerging banks and senior individuals who interact with the banking system.
It will be highly beneficial, not only to individuals new to the roles and responsibilities of being a bank director, but also to experienced bank directors operating in a significantly changed regulatory landscape.
This programme is also designed for senior managers aspiring to be bank executive directors and/ or identified as potential future executive directors within their organisation.
