Those who have successfully completed our Certificate for Documentary Credit Specialists (CDCS®) and Certificate for Specialists in Demand Guarantees (CSDG®) are required to maintain their certification through the completion of CPD within a three year cycle.

We believe our new name makes the professional and applied nature of our programmes more clear and will assist those holding professional designations in gaining the recognition they deserve for their commitment to lifelong learning and high standards.   

From September 2016 all CDCS® and CSDG® certifications will be issued by The London Institute of Banking & Finance.

Employer recognition

We are publicising our new name, vision and strategy widely within the international banking and finance sector to ensure that employers are aware of the new name, understand our background and recognise the quality and value of our programmes and the professional credentials of those holding our qualifications.           

If you have any questions or concerns

Please speak to a member of our customer services team on +44 (0) 1227 818609 or by emailing  cdcs@libf.ac.uk.
