Treasury Certification Verdict

The CertICM was completely revised in 2021 removing the requirement of the 1-week residential course in the United Kingdom or Hong Kong. Although that many former CertICM student expressed that the residential stay was the high-light of their study, the Covid-19 pandemic meant that face-to-face courses would be less achievable going forward. Another reason to remove the residential course was because the ACT is looking to attract more overseas students.

What students say

“I really recommend the 1-2-1 session, I could clarify specific questions on concepts applicable not only to pass the test, but also to fully understand some technical topics, as well I took the opportunity to ask how to apply in my current job a concept learned in this certification.

Mentioning this certification on my CV has been opening opportunities for interviews during job applications, it has also given an added value on my LinkedIn profile.”

“The fluidity of the content was organic, logical and very informative. It embedded real examples and scenarios which facilitated comprehension much better than just learning theoretical concepts.

The certificate has reinforced the value of continuous learning. It has made me better equipped to analyse & provide solutions and articulate logical reasons for the solution being the best fit in a given scenario. Certainly, this has aided in my professional competency.”
