The International Centre for Financial Regulation (ICFR) has launched a free training catalogue, providing an inventory of key training offerings in regulation compliance and risk management.
The ICFR’s pioneering offering provides a resource for the global financial community at a time when the need for education around regulatory issues has never been greater. The courses selected for inclusion in the training catalogue are of the highest quality in their respective sectors and jurisdictions.
The catalogue will initially include over 200 courses from 20 providers that can deliver a truly international offering. The courses in the training catalogue cover a range of formats, from traditional classroom based teaching to e-learning. The objectives of each of the courses also vary to allow for the different experience levels and aspirations of the users.
Nicole Hergarten, director of training at the ICFR, said: “At a time when governments and regulators are focusing on reform in the financial markets it is more important than ever that financial services professionals are equipped to operate in a changing landscape. Training is of critical importance. The ICFR training catalogue has been developed to meet this critical requirement by providing a single resource on key courses in regulation and risk management across all financial sectors and markets.”
