From Fred Ezeh, Abuja

Teacher’s Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN), at the weekend, restated its determination to sanitize the teaching profession by organizing Teacher’s Professional Qualifying Examination (PQE) 11,629 candidates, being second batch of the 2022 exercise.

The exercise took at the SASCON International School, Maitama, Abuja, with the FCT having the highest number of candidates with 982 teachers. Lagos and Anambra followed, respectively, while Ondo and Kaduna had equal number of registered candidates.

TRCN’s Director of Examination and Licencing, Dr. Jacinta Ogboso, who monitored the exercise in Abuja, stressed the importance of the examination and certification, asking those who are yet to sit for the examination and get certified to do so as quickly as possible before the window closes.

She said that apart from academic qualifications, teachers professional qualifying examination is important for teachers to obtain licenses for their practice.

“We no longer depend on the academic qualification to become a certified professional teacher. After the academic qualification, we want to ensure that people who are going to the classroom to teach our children are actually professionally qualified. That is why this examination is important.

“If you do not pass this examination, you would not be registered by TRCN as a professional teacher, and once you are not registered and identified as a professional teacher, you would not be recognised as a teacher in Nigeria and anywhere in the world.

“So that is why this examination is very necessary and crucial. No professional qualifying examination, no teacher registration certificate, and no licensing by Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria,” she said.

Ogboso, however, noted that candidates who fail the PQE are given three opportunities to write, adding that no teacher who went through teacher education should fail the examination more than twice because it covers professional skills and the foundations of education that are taught in colleges of education and faculties of education in all the teacher education programmes.

“So, everybody who has gone through those teacher education programmes should not have a problem passing this examination.

“The result should be ready within two weeks. After this examination, the result will be extracted and analysed, and the management will set the cut-off mark and then we’ll look at it. There are processes in every civil service so the processes of approving the results will be done and then the result be released to the public,” she explained.

Killexams : Weekend Essay: I sat a professional exam

Last Spring, I had a chat with a journalist from one of our competitors who had been/is taking adviser qualifications.

I found her efforts admirable and this conversation really gave me food for thought.

In the next few months, I mulled over the idea of preparing for a professional certification myself and shopped around, because there are plenty of professional bodies and exams out there.

I wanted something that would interest me but also be useful at the same time. Therefore, it would have to be a certification in investment.

I first considered the CFA Level 1 as it was the investment qualification I had heard the most about.

However, the fees ($900 to $1,200) and the low pass rate (37%) had the effect of a repellent on me. I thought it was not reasonable to spend that much money for something that would in all likelihood end up being a complete disaster.

You may call me pessimistic, I will answer that I am just not self-delusional. If even financial professionals find it hard, my chances were close to none and the technical level is probably way above what a financial journalist needs.

I had a look at the other programmes listed on the CFA’s website and came across the Investment Management Certificate (IMC).

After further research, I had made my decision. This was the right certification for me in many regards.

It aims to provide the foundations in investment management and acquiring the baseline knowledge. It is all I need for now.

Also, while the CFA is not related at all to financial advice (from what I know), the IMC does look into this profession, albeit superficially (it is primarily aimed at investment managers rather than financial advisers). As a result, it still had some relevance to my job.

Last but not least, the IMC is relatively UK-focused in comparison to the CFA which is global in its nature. As I am not a complete stranger to the UK financial industry, that would play in my favour.

I have not completely abandoned the idea of sitting the CFA Level 1 one day. Life is still long (hopefully) and the IMC will enable me to test the water. If I cannot complete it, then the CFA Level 1 is completely out of reach.

As soon as I moved house to a more comfortable and quiet place, there was no excuse and I had to walk the talk.

At the time of writing, I have just passed the first unit ‘The Investment Environment’.

I will not deny it, it is a great relief, but I am only halfway there. I will need to successfully pass unit 2 ‘The Investment Practice’ to complete the certification.

In short, it is half time, I am leading 1-0, but there are 45 further minutes to play.

What was on the menu?

For those who are not familiar with the IMC, the first unit is structured in six chapters: 1- Financial markets and institutions, 2- Ethics and investment professionalism, 3- The regulation of financial markets and institutions, 4- Legal concepts, 5- Client advice, 6- Taxation in the UK.

‘The regulation of financial markets and institutions’ is arguably the most important chapter and is also by a far and wide the longest one. Of the 85 questions at the exam, between 25 to 35 will be allocated to this chapter.

Luckily, it was no terra incognita for me as it extensively deals with the role, status and powers of a very familiar organisation: The Financial Conduct Authority.

While working at Money Marketing certainly facilitated the study of this chapter, I still had to digest extensive extracts from the FCA Handbook.

The chapter also covers, albeit in a much more concise manner, the rest of the UK regulatory bodies.

Some were totally unknown to me such as the Panel of Takeovers and Mergers and the Competition and Markets Authority.

Others sounded familiar, but I did not know what their role was prior to my study. That would include the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) or The Financial Policy Committee.

The difficulty of this chapter was definitely its length and the importance of the information it contains. Almost every single line is crucial and there is no other way than learning by heart.

Some questions in the test simply test the knowledge of the regulatory principles but others require one to apply those same principles in case studies.

It means learning everything verbatim is not enough, you also have to understand what you are learning.

The second and fourth chapters also involve learning the material by heart, but they are thankfully much more succinct.

The first chapter was probably the most destabilising one to me. It smoothly starts with an introduction explaining how the financial system works, who the different actors are and how money circulates between them.

It then abruptly delves into a world that was completely unknown to me: investment exchanges and their infrastructures.

It required a lot of back and forth between Investopedia and the study book to understand what things such as central counterparties, market makers, clearing houses, SETS, SETSqx, bid-ask spread were.

Chapter 5 was the sunshine after the rain. It purely focuses on investment, which was the reason why I chose to study for the IMC in the first place.

It gives a description of the different categories (and sub-categories) of clients and asset classes.

There is also a limited (but interesting) financial advice piece. It includes among others fact find, establishing investment objectives and how to allocate a portfolio based on those objectives.

The chapter also looks into the asset allocation in different types of pension funds, general insurance and life insurance.

I really enjoyed the strategical dimension in this chapter. It was, at least to me, more stimulating than regulations and it also means that I did not need to review this chapter very often.

But against my initial expectations, chapter 6 is the one I preferred.

As it deals with UK taxation, I feared it would be incommensurably dull, but there was also this strategical dimension that made this chapter as stimulating as the previous one.

Obviously, you have first to learn all the UK taxes that are relevant in an investment context, but once it is done, that is when it becomes interesting.

First of all, you have to learn all the computations to calculate those taxes but also strategies to mitigate them.

Maybe tax planning was my true calling, who knows?

How I prepared

I had a lot of apprehension while preparing for this exam. Of course, I have sat exams in an academic context before, but professional exams were something new to me. I did not know what to expect.

Also, I had to deal with a time constraint. The study material is renewed every 1 December and I started in late August, which means I had to successfully pass the test for this unit 1 before 30 November. I was not too eager to start all over again almost from scratch and I am not sure my bank account would have liked me to pay the fee for a second attempt.

As a result, I followed the recommendations provided by CFA UK (the body organising the IMC) very scrupulously.

It advises at least 100 hours of study for unit 1. Since I am not a finance professional,  I knew I would need more.

Therefore, I aimed for 100 hours just for what I called the “initial phase”, which was about reading the study book five times and writing down things I had trouble memorising. It’s time consuming, but I find it makes it easier to process information.

It is very tempting to read passively, it happens instinctively. But writing (especially in your own words) forces you to actively engage with the content.

After an initial skim read of the study book, I had a rough of idea of the length and complexity of each subchapter.

I then allocated those 100 hours for this “initial phase” between late August to 28 October. The point was to ensure I would have two weeks left before the test to focus on my weaknesses.

On 28 October, the result was below the requirement threshold. While the recommendation is that you should score at least 75% at the mock exams, I only got 71% at the mock test I took immediately after completing this so-called initial phase.

But it was a good opportunity to identify my areas of weakness and the two final weeks were dedicated to remediate to those shortcomings.

I read over and over all the subchapters I had not well assimilated and practised the mock exams again and again until I scored above 90%. In total, I have spent around 150 hours to prepare for this exam.

That was sufficient this time around.

Afterthoughts

It was an interesting experience and I feel relieved my efforts bore fruit. I am not getting complacent though. I know I have only completed the easiest unit of a relatively “beginner-friendly” certification.

I have learnt plenty of things, some of which will, I hope, be useful in my work.

It also answered some questions I had been asking myself for a while. For example, I did not know much about the UK regulatory bodies beyond the FCA.

I guess I also now have a vague idea of what advising clients on investment requires and how to structure their portfolio (I am not saying I would know how to do it, I just roughly know how those things work).

The most immediate benefit I gained from this unit is a solid overview of the UK tax system. With the upcoming Autumn Statement, I hope to be able to make good use of what I have just learnt.

However, I do wonder what I will remember of it in say six month’s time. This is especially true of the contents that had no relevance or link to what I do in my everyday (all the things related to investment exchanges for example).

But I suppose, even pros do not retain everything they have learnt while studying for their certifications.

As I have not had any free evenings over the past few months, I will deliver myself a break until December. Although I must say, it already feels strange not having to study after work. It just does not feel normal.

I look forward to start learning for unit 2. From the few I could see, it will be much more mathematical than unit 1. I hope time has not eroded my numeracy skills too much (I used to be an accountant a while ago).

Hopefully, this Weekend Essay will have a part II in a couple of months.

Killexams : The Cybersecurity Assessor and Instructor Certification Organization Launches Certified CMMC Professional Exam

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md.--()--The Cybersecurity Assessor and Instructor Certification Organization (CAICO) today announced the formal launch of the Certified CMMC Professional (CCP) test that is now available to qualified candidates within the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Ecosystem. The CCP examination verifies a candidate’s knowledge of the Department of Defense (DoD) CMMC framework and the roles and responsibilities of various positions within it. This is a key milestone for the program, as having trained and certified assessors ready to support Certified Third-Party Assessment Organizations (C3PAOs) is paramount for the successful scaling of assessments across the Defense Industrial Base (DIB).

“The CCP test represents the foundation of an individual’s journey to becoming a CMMC Assessor or Instructor and can open a wide variety of career opportunities,” said Kyle Gingrich, the CAICO’s Interim Executive Director. “CCPs, bringing their industry knowledge and expertise, are like apprentices who are continuing to build upon their prior experience with new CMMC skills and knowledge. They learn as they go— not only through training and exams, but also through hands-on experience in the field.”

The beta test program for the CCP test was conducted from August through September of this year. The CCP beta test enabled the CAICO to gather the qualitative and quantitative data required to assess how test items were performing so that development could appropriately refine and enhance the test to ensure it validates the knowledge a CCP is expected to demonstrate.

“With the launch of the official CCP exam,” Gingrich noted, “we are validating that those individuals who achieve the CCP certification have a standard and consistent working knowledge of CMMC as a whole and how it is implemented in the context of assessments.”

CMMC certification exams are not publicly available. To gain access to the test registration process requires successfully completing CCP training through a CAICO-approved Licensed Training Provider (LTP), which are organizations that deliver formal CMMC professional training. Individuals seeking CCP training to pursue their certification can select an LTP through the Cyber AB’s Marketplace. More information on the qualifications and timelines for CCP and CCA certifications can be found on the Cyber AB’s Assessing and Certification page.

To find out more about the CCP test itself, the CCP Blueprint can be found on the Cyber AB’s website at www.cyberab.org.

About The Cybersecurity Assessor and Instructor Certification Organization

The Cybersecurity Assessor and Instructor Certification Organization (CAICO) is the dedicated CMMC entity facilitating the training, examination, and professional certification for individuals within the CMMC Ecosystem. The CAICO is a wholly owned subsidiary of the CMMC Accreditation Body, Inc. and operates as a nonprofit organization with federal tax-exempt status.

Killexams : NEXT - The largest CIM Institute advises on CIM Syllabus changes

Next School of Business, the premier CIM institute in Sri Lanka maintained its leadership position with its record student numbers for the last intake.

Within a short time span NEXT became the undisputed market leader in CIM education in Sri Lanka with its EXPERT lecture panel and state- of- the- art study facilities. Speaking to Education Times, Ms Kumudu Abeyawardane, the General Manager of NEXT commented that the success is solely attributed to the expert panel of lecturers, including Dusty, Bertram and Ravi.

She went on to say 'all our lecturers are MBA qualified and trained by CIM in UK. They hold CEO and Heads of marketing positions in leading multinational and local companies in Sri Lanka and have the ability to impart practical knowledge to students with their own experiences'.

When Education Times inquired about the CIM stages and the changes to syllabi, Ms Aberwardene explained the current status and the changes that are taking place in detail so that students can be better prepared.

Stage 1 - New Syllabus

'The new syllabus for Stage 1 which commenced last year, is well established now and any student starting CIM will have to follow the new syllabus. NEXT has been a pioneer in adapting the new syllabus with close connections with CIM - UK and other UK study centres. NEXT secured two Sri Lanka prizes for Essentials of Marketing (EM) and Marketing Information & Research (MIR) subjects and recorded high pass rates. The success of Stage 1 is ample evidence of the capability of lecturers to coach students for both test based and assignment based subjects. NEXT has developed easy to follow step by step guidelines for assignment based subjects and a special revision programme for test based subjects to ensure high pass rates' Ms Abeywardene added.

Stage 2 - Old Syllabus

Commenting on the options for students in Stage 2, Ms Abeywardene said 'this session students have the option of following the old syllabus or the new syllabus and completing stage 2. At NEXT we offer both options and already we have got many students registering for both. We have Sri Lanka's best panel for stage 2 old syllabus and this is our biggest strength. Whether you are half way or yet to start stage 2, you have one last opportunity to get through the Professional Diploma (Stage 2) Old Syllabus with NEXT, with an unmatched panel of lecturers including Dusty, Bertram and Ravi. There are specially prepared NEXT Publications including course workbooks, revision kits, Q & A books and test forecasts that none can match students who follow the old syllabus. We urge students to register fast as there are limited seats.

Stage 2 - New Syllabus

NEXT is fully geared to handle the new Stage 2 syllabus. The three assignment based subjects are supported with step by step easy to follow assignment guidelines specially prepared by the tutors. Ms Aberwardene explained the transition arrangement to the new syllabus for the benefit of students and parents.

Stage 3 - Old Syllabus

She explained the new developments that will take place in the final stages in detail; CIM - UK is rolling out a new syllabus to replace the current CIM Stage 3 (postgraduate diploma). The new qualification or new stage 3 will be known as 'the Chartered Postgraduate Diploma.

The new Chartered Postgraduate Diploma Level will consist of two phases. Like the current Postgraduate Diploma, Phase 1 will comprise of four units or subjects. The assessment criteria will be changed to assignment and work based projects except one subject. The new Phase 1 subjects will be:

Phase 2 will be known as 'leading marketing' and it will consist of 3 sections and will be evaluated through a work based assignment or project. This will also have 60 credits similar to Phase 1. NEXT will deliver this new syllabus from January 2010.

Ms Abeywardene said 'if you act fast, you have the chance to get CIM qualified real fast while the old syllabus is still available! If you do all 4 subjects or a few in Dec 2009 you can do the balance in June 2010 and complete CIM within the old syllabus. NEXT will conduct Old Syllabus classes only for Dec 2009 & June 2010 test sessions. We will provide a comprehensive set of course workbooks, revision kits, Q & A books and test forecasts to help students to complete their CIM'.

Apart from the expert lecture panel, NEXT School of Business has a state- of- the- art modern learning facility conveniently located at Havelock Road. NEXT is setting up a computer laboratory facility for the use of students. Ample parking and easy access through public transport are benefits students find at NEXT. Within a year of operation NEXT became the leader in CIM education in Sri Lanka and achieved recognition as a CIM Accredited Tuition Centre.

NEXT School of Business was set up by a group of professionals who are holding senior management positions in the Corporate Sector and who have in common the passion of empowering young executives with the knowledge, skills and competences required for career advancement and personal development.
