Corporate Directors Training Programme (CDTP)

The Corporate Directors Training Programme (CDTP) is mooted in line with the Government’s aspirations towards achieving the objectives of a K-Economy. This is to ensure that company directors are equipped with basic knowledge of the laws and rules applicable to the entities they are responsible for. This programme is designed to help directors better understand organisational issues and that they are cognisant of statutory and industrial developments that impact them personally and their company.

It is vital for directors of non-listed companies to undergo this training programme to equip themselves with the necessary knowledge. With appropriate understanding and awareness of their roles and responsibilities and corporate governance, compliance level would be greatly improved, thereby enhancing the healthy and dynamic investment environment and image of the country in the corporate world.

This programme is intended for potential, new and sitting directors and executive management. It is also highly recommended for management consultants.
