About ICMA Education & Training

ICMA Education & Training has been setting the standard of training excellence in the capital markets for almost five decades with courses covering everything from market fundamentals to latest developments and more. Beginning decades ago with the delivery of the General Certificate Programme – a course now known as the Fixed Income Certificate and still regarded as one of the qualifications that will “get you a banking job”* - we now offer a portfolio of over 20 courses for front, middle and back-office staff across both buy-side and sell-side including issuers, investors, underwriters, regulators and infrastructural providers. Typical clients include banks, investment banks, central banks, asset managers, exchanges, CSDs, regulatory bodies, law firms and many more

Our portfolio of courses reflects the major areas of activity of the association in primary, secondary and repo & collateral markets, alongside horizontal themes of sustainable finance and digitalisation. In addition, ICMA Education & Training offers courses specifically for securities operations professionals as a separate subject area. Education & training is an integral part of ICMA’s commitment to setting high professional standards in the industry and our courses are backed by our market knowledge and extensive international experience.

We are accredited by CPD® Certification Service and approved by the Securities & Futures Commission of Hong Kong for Continuous Professional Training (CPT), and in addition our advanced courses are aligned with European Qualifications Framework (EQF) level 5.

Offering both assessed and non-assessed courses across foundation, advanced and specialist levels we deliver both open registration programmes in a variety formats (including in-person, livestreamed and online self-study) and tailored programmes to meet your specific learning objectives.

Regardless of whether you’re looking to advance your career by engaging in accredited professional development programmes, looking to build your team’s or organisation’s capacity in a particular area or are interested in how we can help design and deliver a comprehensive development programme for a large audience, ICMA Education & Training can help.
