Dubai, United Arab Emirates: ME NewsWire: IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants) is organizing an advanced training series in Bahrain this month. “Train the Trainer” is designed to empower CMA® (Certified Management Accountant) instructors in the region on the latest finance industry advancements and training techniques.
The three-day workshop equips CMA trainers with the modern training methodologies required to transfer knowledge to a diverse platform of candidates. It reviews the various parameters of management accounting and finance training, including planning, design, implementation, skill development, evaluation, and reporting.
“The noticeable shift towards a knowledge economy is affirming the importance of human development,” says Hanady Khalife, Director of Operations, IMA, Middle East and Africa. “We are continuously aligning our management accountant modules to the latest technologies and therefore find ongoing trainer updates to be an integral part of our mission to maintain the highest training standards in the region.”
“Ultimately, our association plays a major role in the advancement of the management accounting role within organizations whereby each candidate we certify then goes on to support his or her company in managing and controlling risk during volatile times,” added Khalife.
The regional program is led by Ammar Al Khayyat—one of the most prominent figures in the finance sector. During his twenty-year career in financial management, Al Khayyat has worked for various multinational organizations by the likes of PepsiCo Jordan, Arab Bank, Andersen and Maktoob.com. In addition, he also has more than 20 years of experience in teaching CPA & CMA with Morgan International across the Middle East region.
