"Professional Development Programmes ( CPD)
Dear Members,

Continuing Professional Development [CPD] demonstrates continuous learning allowing you to take control of your career and provides valuable evidence of commitment to learning and self- development.

By taking control of your own development you can respond to your employers' and customers' expectations while shaping your career in an increasingly competitive industry.

Importance of CPD :

Nowadays, the concept of job for life is slowly vanishing. Bank employees today are expected to move between roles throughout their career and therefore they need to be flexible. This is where CPD is essential. Those who are constantly developing and therefore improving are of most value to their employer, customers and to themselves.

The employers expect their workforce to be competent, flexible and increasingly productive, with a high quality of work produced. The customers expect high standards of service from the employees. In this context, it will be appropriate to expect that the employees take control of their own development so that they are able to respond to their employer's and customers' expectations while shaping their own career in an increasingly competitive industry.
Staff reductions, limited opportunities for progression and competition are all compelling reasons for one to take control of the career. CPD helps to gain the skills that are needed in the days ahead.

The Institute's Initiative :

Recognising this need of the bankers, the Indian Institute of Banking & Finance, like many other initiatives in the competence building exercise of bankers, has come up with a certification process in the area of Continuing Professional Development.

The bank employees may be acquiring a great deal of knowledge and experience on their own through training/seminars/workshops sponsored by the banks bot within an outside the banks, even though they might not have necessarily undergone a formal qualification from a University or Professional Institute. The efforts of the bankers often go unnoticed and their professional competence building efforts go unrecognised.

The Institute believes that all the efforts on the part of the employee towards his competence building and professional upgradation need to be recognised and suitably documented.

CPD Certification :

The Institute has therefore, introduced a system of certification, which recognises the efforts of bankers who are endeavouring to build their professional development. The Continuing Professional Development Certificate is aimed at enhancing the professional competence through a formal, structural and verifiable training program. The Institute provides opportunities to help manage the career of bankers in a variety of ways. Whether a banker is looking for a change or refocus on the job or career, or simply assess the marketability in the current job market, the CPD Certificate would be a passport for such growth.

The CPD program is designed to impart benefits to its members. It provides a framework for professional and personal development of members. It is designed to suit the members' individual situation and allows one to structure one's developmental activities according to their current and future career needs.

What is the role of IIB in CPD activities?

The Institute has been offering a range of continuing professional development programs for the Banking and Finance professionals over the years as under; -

· Publication of Quarterly Journal- Bank Quest
· Publication of Bi-monthly News Bulletin- IIB Vision
· Holding of Seminars by local sub-centres - we have 100 active sub-centres across the country
· Holding of National Level Seminars
· Publication of books on Banking
· Holding of Special Lectures by foreign experts visiting India
· Holding of Sir Purshotamdas Thakurdas Memorial Lecture by an eminent person annually
· Facility for research under Diamond Jubilee Overseas Research Scholarship scheme.
· Information Portal on our website : www.iib-online.org

The members associating with various academic activities of the Institute have benefitted professionally in terms of upgrading their knowledge. But so far, there has been no formal scheme of recognition of all such knowledge acquired by the members. It is therefore, felt that a scheme should be evolved wherein the individuals making serious efforts to upgrade competence should be given appropriate recognition.

What is this new Scheme called CPD?

CPD is the systematic upgradation of knowledge and skills and the development of personal qualities necessary to the execution of professional managerial and technical duties throughout a member's working career
