ACI UK News and Coming Events!
ACI Exam suite accredited in UK for Continuing Professional Development
Following on from the recent announcement of ACI UK's membership of The CPD Certification Service (CPDUK), we are delighted to announce that CPDUK has now assessed and certified the ACI Dealing Certificate, ACI Operations Certificate and ACI Model Code Certificate as meeting established global principles for Continuing Professional Development. As such, these exams are 'CPD-eligible' for ACI UK members pursuing CPD goals within their organisations. Further, ACI Certificates issued to UK members in the last 6 months can be included in CPD targets.
ACI UK is committed to promoting, through education, the highest global standards of professionalism, competence and ethics in financial markets. Recognised, independent CPD certification adds further value to the ACI exam suite for individuals pursuing CPD objectives as well as organisations and institutions that require employees to take ACI exams as a mandatory element of internal training.
