ATA Successfully Delivers China Banking Professional Certification Exam.
To accommodate more candidates for the exam, ATA added testing centers in three new locations including Jiangsu Yixing, Hunan Zhuzhou and Hunan Yueyang. With support from China Banking Association Professional Certification Office and Hong Kong Institute of Bankers, ATA held the CBPC exam for the first time in Hong Kong on June 6th. According to the memorandum of mutual recognition of qualifications between the China Banking Association and the Hong Kong Institute of Bankers, any practitioner who already holds a Certified Financial Management Planner Examination (CFMP) Level One certificate (Hong Kong version), as long as they pass the fundamental subjects of the CBPC exam, will be qualified for private wealth management by China Banking Association.
"We are pleased to reach another milestone in the development of our computer based testing business," commented Mr. Kevin Ma, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ATA. "The CBPC test is another example of the successful execution of our strategy as we expanded the number of test centers to better address the needs of our customers, added new test titles, and attracted a record number of test takers for this recurring exam."
ATA leveraged its unique technology platform to provide unmatched support services to the CBPC exam including remote monitoring, and data analysis. China Banking Association representatives in Beijing monitored the exam in different testing centers remotely through real time online video conference. They also made an onsite visit to the exam site at Beijing University of Science and Technology.
