What We Offer

IBP offers a wide range of training programs that cater to the financial services industry.

a. Certified, Standardized and Assessment-Based Training Programs

The development of Certified, Standardized and Assessment Based Training Programs at the IBP recently came into effect as part of the Institute’s initiative to restructure its training design methodology. A standardized list of 8 job families in the commercial banking industry was identified and 38 generic job functions were recognized for the same. Intensive research has been conducted for each of these job functions and a task inventory for each of the 38 functions has been created. Core competencies have been dimensioned as Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes, which are required to perform each of the job functions.

b. Internationally Accredited Programs

In 2010, the IBP in partnership with an established and well-recognized organization – International Finance Corporation (IFC), launched a Bank Risk Management training program.

Bank Risk Management training is a three-day intensive program aimed at addressing the risk training needs of CEOs, CFOs, Board of Directors and all staff working in the risk management function of banks.

The successful launch of this program has prompted the Institute to develop more international collaborations going forward. The IBP is now working towards establishing accredited programs at the Institute and is expected to launch more and more of such programs in the coming year.
