The European Institute of Management and Finance (EIMF) achieves Accredited Training Provider Status from the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI) UK
The European Institute of Management and Finance (EIMF), the only specialised education and training institute in Cyprus that caters towards the needs of the Financial Services Market, and with the largest number of expert trainers from the Sector, is proud to announce that it has received Accredited Training Provider status from the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI).
The CISI is the largest and most widely respected professional body for those who work in the Securities and Investment industry in the UK as well as for a growing number of major financial centres round the world, including Cyprus. Its accreditation process is a key feature of its quality assurance, with the purpose of enabling training providers to demonstrate that they can deliver quality training and support for candidates preparing to sit CISI exams.
To achieve the accreditation, the EIMF had to meet a number of strict criteria including having members of the tutoring staff as CISI full members within one year of the application, demonstrating strong tutoring and learning resources as well as administration and record keeping procedures, and passing a strict approval visit that evaluated the Management’s experience.
Mr Marios Siathas, General Manager of the EIMF commenting on this success said: “we are honoured by the decision of the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment UK to approve the EIMF as an Accredited Training Provider in Cyprus. This is a great addition to the EIMF’s growing list of achievements and a fitting confirmation of our high level of specialisation and the expert level of our training and education provision for the Sector”
Presenting the Accreditation Certificate on behalf of the CISI, Mr Petros Florides, President of CISI Cyprus said: “On behalf of the Cyprus National Advisory Council, I congratulate the EIMF for achieving the status of ‘Accredited Training Provider’ from the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investments. As such, the EIMF is a valued partner to the CISI in promoting standards of professionalism, integrity and excellence within the financial services in Cyprus and beyond. We look forward to close working relationship.”
