ILLUSTRATIVE CDFP JOURNEY

My name is Kevin and I work for a Central Bank. I am on the path to becoming a CDFP-REG as I specialise in Regulation. I have completed my foundations with CIDM & LDMM, I have also completed three REG specialisations and have also participated in three Webinars on the topic. I have 96 credits and require 34 more to complete my CDFP-REG journey in three years.

My name is Nura Pari and I work as a programme officer at an international development organisation. I have chosen to become a CDFP-CU as this compliments my current career path. Having completed CIDM & LDMM I then completed International Digital Remittances & Humanitarian Digital Payments. I have four more CU specialisations to complete & I am currently participating in a six-week seminar on Digital Money Adjacencies.

My name is Coco Liao, I am a product specialist working for a Pan African Bank. I am currently completing the CDFP-TECH. I am in my third and final year of the journey and have already completed the foundational courses, four specialisations in TECH/OPS and four webinars related to the subject matter. I will complete my journey by attending Bitcoin: Back to the Future & Digital Identity & participating in webinars focused on the topics.

My name is Juan Navarto and I work for an impact investment company who focuses on investing in fintech businesses. As my role touches on all of the specialisation tracks I have become a CDFP Generalist, as well as completing CIDM & LDMM, I have completed six specialisations across all three tracks including Payment System Governance, Digital Innovation in Agriculture & Blockchain for Development. I have also participated in six webinars, and have 130 credits. I am a Certified CDFP Generalist.
