GRC Professional : GRC Winter 2012
35 Bedrock knowledge Cora Truong, compliance specialist at eo Financial Services, says ACI’s Associate Intensive Program (Certificate IV in Compliance Management) has equipped her with the fundamental skills and understanding to excel in a career in compliance. By OBelia MOdjeSka Cora’s job as a compliance specialist with eo Financial services keeps her busy every day, but she has no regrets about her decision to enrol in the associate Intensive Certificate IV in Compliance management. Her experience highlights the irreplaceable value the course offers in terms of professional development. Cora says she particularly appreciated the opportunity afforded by the associate Intensive to apply a framework of theoretical and practical understanding to her daily activities. “the course has enabled me to take time out from the ‘doing’ and to really think about what I do in a more structured way. It resulted in me asking myself questions like: How can I assist in embedding a culture of compliance in my workplace? Who is it I need to engage to do this successfully? What is the approach I take, and how ‘do I do the doing?’” the course provides a truly focused and comprehensive learning experience, observes Cora. the key perspectives on GrC are those endorsed by local and international experts in the field. When Cora recently attended the asFa Compliance summit, she found herself nodding at the key points delivered by the range of expert speakers in GrC issues present at the event. “Whilst sitting there listening to the presenters, I found that I was mentally ticking off all the things I had learnt from the course with what I was hearing from highly regarded compliance personalities. the messages ... reiterated my learnings,” she says. Cora says that what she has learned has also proved useful in understanding and adapting to current changes in her sector. “there’s a shift in industry focus for the superannuation industry in response to cases like trio Capital and Centro towards governance, risk management and compliance. this is highly evident in the apra prudential standards which were recently released.” Cora praised presenter Neill Buck for his professionalism and helpfulness every step of the way. she suggests that anyone embarking on a career in GrC would benefit from the enhanced skills and competencies she has gained from participation. “this course has provided me with the initial tools I need to succeed as a compliance professional. I wanted to thank the aCI and Neill Buck for all of the above. For those who are considering this course, I highly recommend it.” ••• Top reasons you should consider the Certificate IV Gain fundamental skills and knowledge to • Implement and manage an effective compliance program across any industry or sector using professional standards as a benchmark • Articulate compliance standards and develop a compliance framework • Engage with regulators • Design and develop an issues and breach management process • Outline strategies and compliance programs in order to impact an organisation’s standards and values recognised qualification pathway • Graduates of the program will qualify for ACI’s Certified Compliance Professional Program (CCP), Graduate Certificate in Compliance Management • The premier Australian professional accreditation for those embarking on a compliance career Develop your network • Unique opportunity to develop and strengthen personal networking relationships with like- minded professionals in the GRC space.
