The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Academy has launched the Training Recognition Service, which allows students to earn points toward ICC Academy certifications by attending accredited events in their area of study

The ICC Academy has unveiled a new training recognition programme – allowing students to earn credit towards ICC Academy certification programmes by attending workshops, conferences, seminars, massive open online courses (MOOCs) and other events that focus on their area of study.

The Training Recognition Service plays an integral part of the ICC Academy’s professional development programmes—including the ground-breaking trade finance qualifications unveiled last year—and encourages professionals to diversify their learning experience outside of the Academy’s online courses.

One of the first accredited global events to take place will be the ICC Academy’s 4th Annual Supply Chain Finance Summit in Singapore on 9-10 March. This year’s Summit will look at the evolution of the supply chain financing market, focusing on pressing issues such as the changing needs of SMEs, the implications of fintech, and the growth of renminbi dominated transactions. The summit also features the launch of new standard industry terminology for the supply chain finance industry developed by ICC in collaboration with a range of leading industry bodies. Delegates at this event are able to receive 15 Professional Development Credits towards the ICC Academy’s Global Trade Certificate or the more advanced Certified Trade Finance Professional programme.

Accredited events throughout the world
As part of the Training Recognition Service, ICC’s network of national offices in almost 100 countries around the world will be enabled to provide high-quality in-person training and events in support of Academy programmes.

The first accredited local ICC event will be the ICC Germany Foreign Business Compact seminar, which will be held in Berlin on 27-28 April. This event will provide a comprehensive overview of financial instruments, methods of payment protection, Incoterms® Rules clauses, the correct use of payment and financing instruments, and associated legal issues. The seminar— aimed at beginners and experts alike—will be valid for nine PDCs under the Academy’s programmes.

“The Training Recognition Service encourages ICC Academy members to take advantage of the many great workshops, seminars, conferences run by ICC and our partners,” said Thierry Senechal, Senior Director of the ICC Academy. “Not only does this service enhance the diversity and local relevance of the education provided by the Academy, it also gives professionals a seal of approval they can trust when they come to choose an event or course in what is an increasingly crowded market.”
