(Islamabad – July10th, 2018) A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between Institute of Cost Management Accountants of Pakistan (ICMA PAKISTAN) and Knowledge Now (KN) KN aims to provide ICMA Pakistan members an exclusive interactive webinar repository to watch recorded webinars at any given time. Through this understanding, ICMA Pakistan members would now have the unique opportunity to avail best of the knowledge from global speakers at a much competitive market rate and instantly claim CPDs for the same from ICMA Pakistan. This would ensure that members can get instant access to all the webinars which they missed out attending live.

ICMA Pakistan through this platform, aims to provide its members the facilities of:

  • Live Webinars
  • Archived videos of lectures/webinars
  • Follow up questionnaires
  • Presentations
  • A forum for members to stay in contact
  • And many other learning opportunities.

This repository portal of recorded content is developed in a very transparent manner enabling members to track their watched webinars and respective CPDs they are eligible to claim. ICMA Pakistan administrator(s) can equally generate reports to further confirm allocating CPDs for the same in a very transparent manner.

The MoU has been signed, keeping in view the fact that a major chunk of senior level executives in Pakistan and in the region belongs to this prestigious institute, yet they are unable to spare time from their busy schedules to attend live sessions to claim CPDs. The new interactive portal will now guide members to plan completion of their CPDs with an ease of their own time.

The MoU was signed as a token of understanding to provide ICMA Pakistan members a broader platform at subsidized rates to enhance their knowledge and learning from top-notch global speakers coming from top IVY-league educational institutes and firms.

“This new initiative of e-learning platform by ICMA Pakistan exhibits our zeal to not only facilitate our members to manage their CPDs with an ease, it equally reinforces our mission to equip and abreast our members with global best practices through knowledge pace” – Mr. Shehzad Ahmed Malik, ICMA Pakistan.

Chairman CPD Committee .Mr Athar Saleem Ch., while stressing upon the need of continuous learning and development said, “I believe bringing the global best practices through webinar platform by introducing speakers from FT Ranked institutes is an incredible opportunity for ICMA Pakistan members to abreast themselves with the best management practices. Needless to mention access to such an excellent knowledge repository will be extremely beneficial for our members learning.”

“Despite the fact that internet and digitalization is becoming common globally, in Pakistan we still lack the best utilization of information technology. ICMA Pakistan, indeed deserves a pat on their back for taking such an initiative to break this spell and bring the real needed turn around in the area of continuous education in Pakistan on multiple arenas physically and now digitally as well.” – views expressed by Mr. Ali Jafri, President of Knowledge Now
