There is an increasing expectation for professionals to certify their profession internationally and to undertake Continuing Profession Development regardless of industry sector, career level, job role, and responsibilities. It is of no difference for “Trainers”, in fact, it is even crucial for trainers to certify themselves as International Trainer with their accomplishment as trainers.
It is also critical for a trainer to certify their training program internationally to benchmark and validate their program as meeting the international standard, hence creating an opportunity for themselves to conduct training locally and overseas.
IABFM™ Worldwide and Global Recognition
The International Academy of Business and Financial Management™ is an independent, non-regulated worldwide professional society of financial practitioners. We are a not for profit regulatory organization that recognizes the highest in educational, experience, ethical, and continuing education standards as dictated by the Ibanez US Supreme Court decision on financial credentials.
IABFM™ has members and chapters registered in more than 145 countries providing brand recognition for the association and for our individual designations. Our greatest recognition comes from the use of our designations on business cards and email signatures of our thousands of members worldwide. However, other ‘formal’ recognition is broadly and readily available.
In the last three years alone IABFM™ has been chosen by the Greek Ministry of Finance, Chinese Government, Capital Markets Authority of Saudi Arabia, Dubai Stock Exchange (Dubai Financial Market), Kuwait Ministry of Trade and Industry, Singapore Monetary Authority, Qatar Financial Centre, Central Bank of Oman and others to provide training to their employees and authorized partners. IABFM™ is also formally recognized or registered with regulators worldwide.
In 2009 IABFM™ added to our formal status or global recognition with the approval as an approved training organization for the Capital Market Authority in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and for the Qatar Finance and Business Academy (QFBA) under the Qatar Financial Centre Regulatory Authority.
In the United Arab Emirates, IABFM™ has recently registered with the Knowledge and Human Development Authority as a professional association and training organization, which gives the IABFM™ authority to issue diplomas and professional certificates locally in the GCC. IABFM™ is registered similarly with the Ministry of Finance in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the PAAET (Kuwait Public Authority for Applied Education & Training), and various authorities in China.
