CIMA pioneers Islamic finance certificate

CIMA’s Cert IF pioneers a global qualification for staff working in the Islamic financial services industry

CIMA’s
certificate in Islamic finance (Cert IF) is the first global qualification to
focus on the fast growing sector of Islamic finance.

The certificate is aimed at staff currently working within the Islamic
financial services industry and those entering this sector. It is designed to
give professionals two significant market advantages – the professional
recognition of a CIMA international qualification and demonstrable expertise in
the complex, fast growing world of Islamic finance.

Cert IF is expected to give comprehensive skills in key areas such as
Shari’ah compliance and the complexities of the contracts which underpin this
compliance. Students will also develop confidence in using the terminology and
applying the knowledge which set Islamic finance apart from conventional
finance.

The certificate has four compulsory study modules and is a self study,
distance learning qualification, available for study across the globe.
