The AIB Personal Trust Diploma was developed to prepare individuals for professional certification as a Certified Trust and Financial Advisor (CTFA), through the Institute of Certified Bankers (ICB). Becoming a Certified Trust and Financial Advisor is an important career decision for a trust professional and offers both a competitive advantage and professional recognition.
The 20 trust courses in the three curricula, Building Trust Expertise Levels 1 – 3, provide the technical underpinning of the diploma and address the core knowledge areas of the CTFA examination. In addition, the critical importance of ethical conduct in all aspects of the trust profession is reinforced in Ethical Issues for Bankers.
While the curriculum addresses the major knowledge areas assessed by the examination. ICB emphasizes that completion of this diploma does not guarantee success on the CTFA examination. Experience and application of the knowledge to the work setting are important factors as well.
