Treasury Certification Verdict

The CertT is a very intense certification that builds on the knowledge gained in the Certificate in Treasury Fundamentals and focussed on the technical and mathematical aspects of treasury management. It can therefore also be seen as a mini AMCT without the strategic element. Ideally focussed on those with a few years of experience in a corporate treasury environment, but feel they are not yet ready to take the AMCT programme.
