VIETNAM - Improving securities knowledge through online training
As an immediate response to the COVID-19 pandemic, a first online course was organized by the Securities Research and Training Center (SRTC), under the State Securities Commission of Vietnam (SSC), with funding for training equipment and digitalised content provided by Project VIE/032 – Support Vietnam’s Securities Market Consolidation and Improve Training Capacities. The course on “Law on Securities and Stock Market” has been on the wish list of many market participants since the beginning of the year, when the virus outbreak started to prevent all gatherings.

The training not only complied with the requirement of social distancing, but also serves as a milestone for the dissemination of securities knowledge for the SRTC’s first online dissemination activity regarding securities knowledge. Mrs. Ta Thanh Binh, Trainer and General Director of the Market Development Department of SSC, stated that “Investors or those who need a certificate to perform as market practitioners will have access to the required knowledge in the most convenient way, which is also more widely disseminated. Students are excited about the convenience and the time gained with this form of learning form, which is both trendy and necessary, especially for those who come from remote geographical areas”.
The digitalisation of the securities knowledge training programs actually has been a part of SRTC’s strategic plan for a while, but was not realised until VIE/032 stepped in to support the centre to keep up with a modern teaching & learning style and the high demand of learners. In the near future, more trainings will be conducted by using the technical infrastructure supported by the project with the aim of improving the quality and of diversifying the training products of SRTC, given that it is the only securities training institution for the time being. Practitioners and investors now have a better choice of courses with flexible timeframes and better fees.
On the opening day of the course – a milestone for SRTC - on behalf of a beneficiary, Mr. Hoang Manh Hung, Director, was happy to state that his centre “will apply information technology to deliver knowledge to the web system and provide software for students, and that the knowledge will be accessible for not only domestic investors but also international investors who consider investments in Vietnam.”
The training course titled “Law on Securities and Stock Market” takes place at 17:30 – 21:30 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays between 10 June and 10 July 2020.
