Manama: Based on the importance of self-development in business continuity, the Bahrain Institute for Banking and Finance (BIBF) is pleased to announce the launch of its “BIBF +” online platform next July, an initiative that aims to upskill the local cadres during these uncertain times, by developing their skillset and career paths through an interactive virtual environment.

BIBF+ is an advanced smart platform that provides innovative and online training programmes (public and specialised) at preferential prices and aims to enhance participants’ knowledge and capabilities, by providing access to high-quality training anytime, anywhere.

This initiative comes in line with the Kingdom's direction towards investing in Artificial Intelligence (AI) to ensure continuous education and a skilled workforce by investing in modern technology in all fields.

Through this platform, the BIBF offers more than 50 generic and specialised training programmes in various fields such as: Islamic Banking, Leadership, Management, Accounting, Finance, Digital Transformation, Project Management, Insurance, and others.

BIBF+ will deliver multiple learning methodologies to the Institute’s existing infrastructure such as: In-class training, Distance Learning, Virtual Live Classes, and a Digital e-Learning Library.

In this regard, the BIBF’s Director, Dr. Ahmed Al Shaikh stressed that with companies enforcing remote working, and continuously searching for effective ways to ensure business continuity, the BIBF+ platform is considered a practical alternative to the traditional classroom-based training for achieving the desired results at the lowest possible costs.

Dr. Al Shaikh also stressed the importance of training and human capital development as a strategic objective of the BIBF to support the progression of markets in the Kingdom of Bahrain and beyond, consequently forming a strong, sustainable and balanced ecosystem for the national economy.

He also added: "The BIBF enjoys a global reputation in training and education, providing learning opportunities in more than 64 countries around the world. This international trust is yet another testament of its training quality and excellence. BIBF+ will provide greater access to new global markets, by opening training doors for learners anywhere in the world and at their convivence, enhancing the Kingdom’s global footprint in specialised training and development.”

The BIBF plays a pivotal role in the development of human capital for business sectors, through the provision of training programmes that help enhance employee performance and build a more engaged workforce.



The BIBF is the leading training and education provider in the region, and is affiliated to the Central Bank of Bahrain. The Institute plays a vital role in the development of human capital in the Kingdom of Bahrain, the Gulf region, the wider Middle East, Africa and beyond.
