MSD - Virtual Training 2021


Consistent with MSD’s core values of quality service, efficiency and effectiveness; service excellence; high standards, we persevered to offer our calendar of training which you have come to expect. The unfortunate "appearance" of COVID-19 challenged us to re-think our methodologies and the training was held virtually using the WebEx platform.

The training program targeted all Credit Unions and other financial institutions locally and regionally and included the following modules based on the results of a Training Survey held earlier this year:

Standard Training:

  • Dividend/Rebate Processing with facilitator Dil-Solomon Jaggassar
  • ML Post/GL and Year End Post with facilitator Gail Griffith
  • Deposit Interest Management with facilitator Rae-Ann London
  • IFRS9 Management with facilitator Dominic Jennings

Specialised Training:

  • Training for Managers with facilitator Vashti Paul-Khan
  • Training for Accountant with facilitator Collinsworth Howard
  • Training for the Loan Supervisor with facilitator Collinsworth Howard
  • Training for then Internal Auditor and Compliance Officer with facilitator Vashti Paul-Khan
  • Supervisory Committee with facilitator Collinsworth Howard
  • Credit Committee with facilitator Collinsworth Howard
  • System Administrators with facilitators Warren Alexis and Ferdinand McIntosh

We strongly believe that our Virtual Training provided a cost-effective way for pre-incident planning at your financial intuition and will positively impact the quality of service you deliver to your members, resulting in improving members’ satisfaction, sustainability, loyalty, and retention.

It should be noted however, the standard modules with the exception of IFRS were under-subscribed which was not in keeping with the Survey results previously acquired. This clearly shows our commitment to serving our customers even when its not feasible to ensure our brand promise of “committed to customer satisfaction, software excellence and Integrity”
