CeBIH members commence International certification on ePayment


Electronic banking professionals under the aegis of Committee of E-Banking Industry Heads (CeBIH) have commenced the international certification on epayments from the International Academy of Cards and Payments (IACP).

This followed a five day intensive Executive Management training programme organized by IACP in collaboration with CeBIH.

“The certification is in line with our objectives to promote electronic payment in line with global best practices”, said Chuks Iku, Chairman, CeBIH,

“The collaboration with IACP is a demonstration of the commitment of CeBIH to ensuring that its members are well trained and equipped for the delivery of excellent electronic payment services in the country”, he added.

The IACP is an internationally recognized body that trains and certifies professionals in the cards and payment industry and its curriculum has been specially designed by the IACP Global Advisory Board of senior cards and payments professionals and academics. The academy’s certification program is in three stages- Foundation, Intermediate and Expert; leading to the award of the Certified International Cards and Payment Professional (CICPP).

The CICPP curriculum sets out to share industry best practices in face-to-face classroom seminars and offers a formal cards and payments certification that indicates to customers, colleagues and the regulators a commitment to maintaining the highest standards of professionalism worldwide.

Established July 2009, CeBIH comprises all heads of e-business/e-channels and cards services of all the banks in Nigeria. The primary objective of the Committee is to promote electronic banking services in line with global best practices and serve as a forum for sharing ideas and experiences by the E-banking industry Heads.

With this certification, trained CeBIH members would use the designation “Certified International Card & Payments Professional”(CICPP) recognised worldwide.
