training, examinations and professional development programmes;

Diploma Courses/Two-Tier Certificate

 

The IBB conducts the Banking Diploma Examination,
JAIBB (Junior Associate of the Institute of Bankers, Bangladesh) and DAIBB
(Diplomaed Associate of the Institute of Bankers, Bangladesh) usually held
twice a year at such centre as may be determined by the Council of the IBB from
time to time. JAIBB Examination aims at giving basic and fundamental knowledge
of banking and DAIBB Examination is designed to update the advanced knowledge
in the field of banking and allied matters to enable better decision making by
bankers.

 

With these objectives in view, IBB since its inception
has been conducting Banking Diploma Examinations (Part-I/JAIBB &
Part-II/DAIBB) throughout the country. The syllabi for the Examination cover
almost all the theoretical and practical aspects of banking which a banker
comes across in his or her day-to-day work. The Institute modifies/updates the
syllabi of the Examination from time to time keeping in view the new
changes/developments in the banking arena in its domestic as well as international
perspective so that the syllabi can cater to practical requirements of bankers.

 

 

B.  FUTURE PLAN OF IBB

 

IBB has a plan to facilitate
extended library facility to the intending readers, updating the Existing
Examination Management Software (EMS) and Web-site of IBB and organizing
seminars on current economic issues.

 

 

IBB has also a plan to
publish text books on all compulsory subjects of JAIBB and DAIBB examinations
regularly. It has already published three books on Laws & Practice of
Banking, International Trade & Foreign Exchange and Information Technology
in Financial Services  and Management
Accounting. IBB is trying to collect manuscripts on other remaining subjects.
IBB organizes coaching classes in
divisional cities to help the examinees. As many examinees can not attend those
classes, IBB has a plan to upload reading materials of the coaching classes
& lecture videos in its website & YouTube channel.
