Professional Principal Executive Officer Qualification

Registration is now open for candidates who want to enrol for the first intake on 26 February 2018.

The Professional Principal Executive Officer Qualification is a much-needed stimulus for the professionalisation of the role of the Principal Officer which has historically been unstructured and undefined. It will also support the very important transformation imperative as it enables learners to obtain a qualification which may have been inaccessible to working individuals, as well as those unable to satisfy traditional Higher Education access criteria.

Moonstone Business School of Excellence (MBSE) is the first duly accredited training provider to offer this qualification.

Given the very important role played by Principal Executive Officers within the governance structure of a retirement fund, it is surprising that, up to now, very little was available in the form of a duly recognised NQF level 7 qualification for those performing this function, or those aspiring towards it.

This occupational qualification will form the apex of the retirement functionary learning path and will be linked to the Principal Officer Association (POA) professional designations.

Who should register?

  • Current Principal Officers, trustees and retirement fund functionaries.
  • People working in a claims or employee benefits and compensation environment who have access to a retirement fund.

Successful learners will be linked to the professional designations offered by Batseta, the professional body for the profession. The learning pathway will include the Retirement Fund Trustee qualification.
