The CPD is mandated for all licensed professions registered with Securities & Commodities Authority and currently working in the capital market.

The SCA CPD program requires all individual licensed professionals working in the capital market of the UAE complete a minimum of 30 SCA CPD hours per annum in a selection of learning or training activities.

RISC Institute is an accredited training provider of the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment and offers CISI professional qualifications as well as its own series of Competency Certificate courses and seminars for the Capital Markets as a means of obtaining CPD credits.

Individuals who successfully completed any of our Competency Certificates will be awarded with a "Certificate of Achievement"  which is an evidence of commitment, knowledge and understanding.

RISC Competency Certificates

Competency may be defined as the knowledge and skills that individuals must have to perform effectively at work. The RISC series of Competency Certificate Courses are designed to develop such competencies in the participants according to their role and career progression.

Each course has been specifically designed to address a narrow set of competencies in one or two day interventions giving the employer the flexibility to target specific competency gaps in each member of their staff and thus form part of an individual’s training plan to address such gaps or plan for his or her career progression.

Whilst each course in the series is a stand-alone unit, we have grouped them according to the core areas of knowledge and skills required for all roles within the capital market sector.

These Certificates may be enrolled individually to our public classes and may also be conducted in your company's premises for a minimum of 10 participants.
