Posted by on Jan 28, 2014 in Local News & Alerts | 0 comments

The Institute of Directors (IoD) Bermuda branch today announces that it will this year host the four modules that need to be taken before sitting the Certificate in Company Direction (CICD) exam.

The Certificate encompasses the core knowledge and awareness that is necessary to function effectively as a director, including: an in-depth view of the role, responsibilities and legal duties of a director; an understanding of the characteristics of an effective board; sound knowledge of financial terms and concepts; and the issues and processes associated with formulating strategic and business plans and achieving strategic leadership.

The courses leading to the Certificate in Company Direction are: Role of the Director and the Board; Director’s Role in Strategy & Marketing; Director’s Role in Leading the Organisation; and Finance for Non-Financial Directors. The courses are being led by UK-based IoD certified instructors with extensive training in each of the specialised areas.

Face-to-face on-island courses can be supplemented with The Directors’ Knowledge toolkit to test current knowledge; the IoD’s e-learning platform with course materials, interactive exercises and an exam preparation tool as well as IoD webinar series to help delegates prepare for the Certificate in Company Direction exam.

Exams are being held in Bermuda for the first time this year on March 12, June 25 and November 12, as long as there is demand. These are the dates for the Certificate exam worldwide.

IoD Education Chairman, Rochelle Simons, said: “It is exciting to be offering all of the courses as well as the exam leading to the Certificate in Company Direction here in Bermuda. Our vision for the IoD Bermuda is to promote excellence in governance through education and training and we are proud to be the primary provider of director education and training in Bermuda.”

Spaces are still available for the Director’s Role in Leading the Organisation being held on January 31 and February 1 as well as the Finance for Non-Financial Directors course being held from February 20-22. Interested participants should contact Rochelle Simons on 336 2447 or Rochelle.simons@logic.bm. To become a member of the IoD, go to http://www.iod.com/membership/becoming-an-iod-member.
