- PRESS RELEASE
The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), the world's leading and largest professional body of management accountants, has selected Pearson VUE to deliver assessment for its Certificate in Islamic Finance via computer-based testing.
An internationally recognised qualification, the Certificate in Islamic Finance equips candidates with demonstrable expertise in an industry worth an estimated £850 billion. CIMA developed the certificate to address the current shortage of skilled industry professionals around the world, an action which is sure to add to its 172,000 members and students worldwide.
The five-year agreement with Pearson VUE, the leader in computer-based testing, includes use of its CERTS authoring tool, allowing CIMA to perform item writing, test building and content management functions as required.
Candidates are able to schedule their exam online and sit the test at any of Pearson VUE's global and highly secure test centres, providing greater access to the certificate and its learning material than ever before.
Robert Jelly, Executive Director, CIMA Education, said, "The appointment of Pearson VUE to deliver the CIMA Certificate in Islamic Finance via computer-based testing shows our commitment to addressing the need for more professionals in the market. We are confident that our partnership, a collaboration of two leading businesses, will further improve the status of both the certificate and CIMA."
Suzana Lopes, Pearson VUE, VP EMEA Sales and Marketing, added, "We are pleased to help CIMA increase the talent pool within the Islamic finance sector. Our ability to provide candidates with instant notification of their results will allow new highly-skilled professionals to enter the market place quicker than ever before."
