ahlibank holds course on Islamic banking for staff
MUSCAT The Sultanate’s ahlibank has organised a certification course for its existing staff to bring awareness on Sharia-compliant products and services among them. The course, which was conducted by the International Centre for Financial Training, affiliated with the General Council for Islamic Banks and Financial Institutions of Bahrain, lasted for six days from September 17 to September 22 with the participation of its 23 employees. Employees from both front office and back office participated in the course. At the end of the training, all the employees undertook a test and were declared successful and certified by the institute.

“We are proud that 23 staff members from ahlibank are now certified Islamic bankers. Our goal is always to uphold the highest level of commitment to our customers and we want to be prepared to offer the usual high quality of service,” said Abdulaziz Al Balushi, CEO of ahlibank Oman.

The bank is known for its well-trained, knowledgeable individuals who can deal with financial requirements of customers in compliance with the Sharia laws of Islamic banking,” he added.

“ahlibank has tied up with the General Council to avail the highest quality of training in the field, as the council is the official umbrella of the Islamic and financial industry,” said Said Al Hamadani, assistant general manager and head of human resource at ahlibank. “We now have employees who are certified Islamic bankers, one of the first few in the country,” he added.

ahlibank will be conducting more courses in the coming months and is in discussion with various accredited institutions to train its strong local workforce and prepare the staff for a prosperous new era in banking in the Sultanate.
