DOHA: Qatar Finance and Business Academy (QFBA) has announced that it has recently received the most acclaimed membership of The CPD Certification Service. The accreditation is to acknowledge that QFBA courses comply with universally accepted principles of Continual Professional Development (CPD) and have been structured to meet the criteria of personal development plans.
The CPD certification means that the content and structure of the courses have been independently assessed and approved for multi-disciplinary and industry-wide continuing personal and professional development purposes.
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is the holistic commitment of professionals towards the enhancement of personal skills and proficiency throughout their careers. The foundation of CPD is based on the auspices of vocational and skills-based or ‘practical' learning.
The CPD certified training is a testament that the learning activity has reached the required CPD standards and benchmarks, and that the learning value has been scrutinized to ensure integrity and quality. Furthermore, the CPD Certification Service provide recognized independent CPD assessment compatible with global CPD standards.
Providing CPD enables organizations to become a knowledge bank to key stakeholders of your organization. CPD accredited training courses, workshops and events allow professionals to use the learning time towards individual CPD requirements. Such strong membership is slated to enhance the scope of QFBA in its future endeavors and will ultimately benefit students who are a part of QFBA.
Dr. Khalid Al Horr, Chief Executive Officer, QFBA, said: 'We are delighted to be recognized as an accredited provider with the CPD Standards Office. As we are all aware, the world of financial education is constantly changing at a rapid pace, with increased competition. This credential will offer a tremendous boost to our academy's apprentices in their future endeavors and provide them a great platform to start their career on the right track. We, at QFBA, are taking immense efforts to support Qatar National Vision 2030 where education is recognized as one of the crucial pillars for the country's holistic growth. By offering right platforms to our future generations, we believe we will be able to achieve our target in the most structured way and would be able to bring a change to the Qatari financial landscape.
