Training activities

In our efforts to equip individuals with Corporate Governance best practices, the Institute of Corporate Governance of Uganda organizes corporate governance trainings for Senior Management, Committee Members, Compliance Officers, Company Secretaries, Audit Professionals, Risk Management Professionals, Change Managers, Accounting Professionals, Procurement Professionals, to mention but a few which take place twice a year.

The ICGU specializes in training Senior Managers and Board members in corporate governance practices for sustainability of their organizations and personal career growth through continuous professional development.  With the growing need for practical skills, this comes in as the best tool to equip Directors and Senior Managers with their duties and responsibilities to manage their organizations based on the best principles of Corporate Governance.

ICGU has conducted over 150 Tailor-made Courses with over 4,000 Participants from more than 240 Organisations across the country in various areas of governance. The Institute therefore is pleased to recognize and congratulate members who have undertaken Corporate Governance training for their professional growth. This has added to the growth of a business community that takes responsibility for its stakeholders and the community at large.

The training program will not only continue but will be enhanced and diversified from time to time to cater for the numerous needs of our clients and assist them in building capacity on which to manage their organisations based on the principles and values of corporate governance.

Training of Trainers

The Institute held a 5 day Training of Trainers (TOT) programme in Corporate Governance in October 2003 where:

– 45 participants were trained.
– 8 of the participants were Certified by the Commonwealth Association of Corporate Governance.

Another TOT was conducted in 2007 to reinforce the Institute’s training capacity. The programme was facilitated by Uganda Management Institute with the funding support of GTZ/Sida/FSDP:- 22 participants were trained.    More TOT programmes will be conducted by the Institute in due course.

We urge more individuals to undertake these trainings to understand the need for effective Corporate Governance Standards and how to implement them in their respective organizations.
