    The CISI in Qatar

The CISI in Qatar

Qatar is an ever expanding market for the CISI, with support from the Qatar Financial Centre.

Mandatory CISI qualification requirements set by both the Qatar Financial Centre Regulatory Authority and the Qatar Financial Markets Authority have seen CISI exam numbers surge over the past few years.

The CISI have established strong relationships with the Banks, Firms and Brokerages for a wide spectrum of exams using local CISI Accredited Training Providers to support the training of exams. The growing number of candidates taking CISI exams in Qatar demonstrates Qatar’s drive to be a key financial hub in the Middle East and the Institute’s strategy to raising the level of professional standards within the financial sector.

We work in partnership with Accredited Training Partners (ATP) to offer face-to-face classroom training, corporate clients and Universities. Candidates can also choose to self-study for CISI qualifications using CISI workbooks and eLearning.
