Electronic banking professionals under the aegis of Committee of e-Banking Industry Heads have commenced the international certification on e-payments from the International Academy of Cards and Payments.
According to a statement by the committee, the development follows a five-day intensive executive management training programme organised by the IACP in collaboration with CeBIH.
The statement quoted the Chairman, CeBIH, Mr. Chuks Iku, as saying, “The certification is in line with our objectives to promote electronic payment in line with global best practices.”
“The collaboration with the IACP is a demonstration of the commitment of CeBIH to ensure that its members are well trained and equipped for the delivery of excellent electronic payment services in the country.”
The IACP is an internationally recognised body that trains and certifies professionals in the cards and payment industry and its curriculum has been specially designed by the IACP Global Advisory Board of senior cards and payments professionals and academics.
The academy’s certification programme is in three stages- Foundation, Intermediate and Expert; leading to the award of the Certified International Cards and Payment Professional.
The CICPP curriculum sets out to share industry best practices in face-to-face classroom seminars and offers a formal card and payment certification that indicates to customers, colleagues and the regulators a commitment to maintaining the highest standards of professionalism worldwide.
Established July 2009, CeBIH comprises all heads of e-business/e-channels and cards services of all the banks in Nigeria.
The primary objective of setting up the committee is to promote electronic banking services in line with the global best practices and serve as a forum for sharing ideas and experiences by the e-banking industry heads
