The Association of Corporate Treasurers announced that its Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme has won the Global e-Business Innovations Award 2000 in the Management Education category. This award is sponsored by 3com and was announced at the CBI Conference. The web-based knowledge service, sponsored by Standard & Poor’s, was launched in April 2000 to provide members with the necessary input and guidance to further their lifelong learning process at all stages of their careers. So that treasurers can keep up to date in a rapidly changing profession, the CPD resource hinges on a series of multiple choice tests available on the Association’s website. The tests enable a treasurer to determine confidentially his level of proficiency. A fresh set of questions will be produced for each test within 12 months. Website linkages lead members from the test results to relevant study materials and journal articles designed to enhance the treasurer’s knowledge in the tested area.
