EACTP on course to launch Pioneering Education Programme
The European Association of Certified Turnaround Professionals (EACTP) is on track to launch its training and examination programme at the end of this year.
The EACTP is working to complete its curriculum in order for study courses to start next year with the first exams due to be held in London in November 2016. From 2017 examinations will be held annually in June in conjunction with the TMA Europe annual conferences.
The curriculum will set out areas to be tested, and a suggested reading list for the three modules of finance, law and management. Both the curriculum and reading list will be available online with applicants able to either self-study or take optional study courses.
The EACTP's Education and Training Committee is working closely with Professor Jan Adriaanse of Leiden University, the IEB in Madrid and senior EACTP members on the creation of the curriculum.
Alan Tilley, Chair of the ETC, said: "Work is progressing at pace to complete the curriculum so we can launch Europe's first professional turnaround management exam. I would like to thank all those involved, particularly our colleagues at Leiden University and The IEB whose help and support has been crucial."
Mr Tilley also thanked Joanne Holland, Pedro Acien and Marcel Windt for their contribution to the ETC.
More details about the curriculum and the exams will be announced later in the year.
