For Risk and Compliance professionals, meeting management's expectation can sometimes be a huge task, most especially when expectations exceed the team's capability to deliver, thereby resulting in disappointing outcomes.

This program is designed to bridge knowledge gap and provide participants with better understanding of the regulatory compliance needs, potential risks and important stakeholders in the payments industry. The goal of this course is to provide participants with knowledge and skills that can immediately be used upon return to the organization.

In an era where support functions are mostly seen as mere cost centers in an organisation, participants will learn to appreciate the extent to which Risk and Compliance functions can positively impact the organization’s bottom-line through effective Risk-Based management approach.

I have been able to understand the Postilion environment and I wish there were more hands-on practicals involved. It's a tremendous value that Interswitch handles payment and switching services that make payment services innovative and interface-friendly. What I liked most about the program was that the facilitators were knowledgeable and engaging and the others were collaborative, helpful, and enthusiastic. The classes were all provided with a high level of interaction and useful information that I can take and apply to my daily work

The Postilion Training has helped to validate my previous knowledge in Payment Systems and also boost my confidence in working in an FEP environment. The manuals can also serve as a reference for me whenever I encounter any challenge while discharging my duties. It also gave me an opportunity to meet colleagues in other places of work, to interact and share useful knowledge within ourselves. Many thanks to Oluwatoyosi and Adegoke for making the experience an unforgettable one. It can only get better
