Demonstrating an expertise and commitment to the finance profession, 94 treasury professionals from China have passed the Certified Treasury Professionals (CTPs) examination.
A global standard in the finance profession, the CTP credential is earned by meeting work experience and rigorous examination requirements that test an applicant's mastery of the knowledge required to execute critical functions related to corporate liquidity, capital and risk management.
The CTP exam in China is part of a pilot program with the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, the world's largest bank. ICBC hired Kaplan Coinage to educate and prepare selected employees for the CTP exam. The Chinese version of the CTP exam currently is restricted to ICBC employees, but eventually will be opened to all candidates in China. In addition, Kaplan Coinage plans to expand the CTP training program to other major banks within China.
"These individuals have demonstrated an expertise and commitment to the finance profession, and we are extremely pleased to welcome them into a community of over 20,000 individuals worldwide who have earned this distinguished certification," says Jim Kaitz, President and CEO of the Association for Financial Professionals.
Held in Beijing and Shanghai on August 22, 2009, the CTP exam was delivered in Chinese, and was the first time the CTP exam was not offered in English.
