E-learning Programme Graduation 2012

It was the afternoon of 7 February 2012 and the Petrovsky Salon in Moscow's Marriott Royal Aurora was packed. The last session of Exporta's 5th Annual Russia and Eurasia Trade and Export Finance conference was taking place, but no one dared to leave early because the second annual graduation ceremony of the EBRD Trade Finance e-Learning Programme was about to start.

The graduates of 2012 braved frosty Russian weather and travelled to Moscow to receive their ICC Certificates of Achievement. All of them had 12 months to complete seven modules – the most extensive suite of trade finance training available to any trade finance professional worldwide.

You couldn't tell who was more nervous – the graduates, the TFP team or Thierry Sénéchal, Senior Policy Manager at the ICC Banking Commission who came to Moscow especially for this event. For many graduates it was a rare opportunity to receive their certificates directly from the regulator in trade finance.

We wish you good luck in your studies!


As in the previous year, the TFP's partner banks awarded the best students with special prizes. Commerzbank invited Innesa Amirbekyan of Ameriabank to complete a two-week internship at its headquarters in Frankfurt. Michael Gutsa of Credit Bank of Moscow won a bespoke one-week training course in London, sponsored by Euromoney Training. Mariia Ivaschenko of Raiffeisen Bank Aval and Nadica Bosilkova Boskova of Komercijalna Banka Skopje both won iPads, presented by China Systems and eBSI. Suren Kocharyan of Ameriabank received a subscription to DC Pro, courtesy of Coastline Solutions, as did Olga Belovolova of NBD Bank, the only top graduate from a regional Russian bank.

And so we look forward to meeting next year's graduates and continuing our ground-breaking work in educating trade finance professionals throughout the EBRD's countries of operations.
