9th Banking Fundamental Supervision Course

To non-central bankers may not know what does a supervisors do. Is it like an external auditor? Well, it is not. They don't look at financial figures as much as an external auditor does. They focus and ensure that a bank's failure will not affect the financial stability of the nation. This generally applicable everywhere.

Anyway, that is not my main role. I mean, I am an internal auditor. I audit the supervisor while the supervisor supervises the banks out there .. XD

How do I end up in this course when I say that is not my role? Well, as the Sup Sectors uses risk-based framework which is the same concept used at my dept, definitely I will have my take away. Further, to be able to give assurance that the Sup's dept are functioning well, we, as the Internal Auditor also have to understand their business environment, isn't it? So, I definitely has a big take away from this course.

It is a 2 weeks course. At first, I was quite reluctant in attending this course as consciously I still have many pending work to be done and having to get away from the office for 2 weeks. However, the course overall was fun and enjoyable. This course was not only open to the new supervisors but also to other central bankers who is part of the MTCP (Malaysia Technical Cooperation Programme).

So all and all, I learnt new things about how a bank works out there and also I met with a lot of great friends. There are participants from PIDM, LOFSA, SC, central bankers from China, Thailand, Indonesia, Phillipines, Sudan, Somalia, Afghanistan, Sudan, Cambodia, Bahrain and also Bhutan.

Plus, this is a residential training, so we actually has rooms at Lanai Kijang, our Bank's training / club centre. At first, I thought I would be travelling to and fro for the training, but when I got the key to my room. I changed my mind. I'll definitely fully utilised the room and facilities for that 2 weeks because after this course, I don't know which course in the future that I'll be able to use this facilities again.
