IBFI’s annual programme offers free training seminars for the managerial staff of central banks and banking supervisory bodies.
Central banks or institutions intending to register a participant must apply before the deadline (generally 2 months before the date of the seminar), using the programme of seminars provided on the Banque de France’s website:
We insist on the fact that trainees have to attend every session of the seminar and sign the attendance sheet circulated every day.
A pre-booking is made with a partner hotel for all participants. This hotel is 3-star according to European standards.
Participants can book in any other hotel. However, the participants from countries eligible for a full or partial reimbursement of their accommodation costs by IBFI, must choose the partner hotel in order to obtain this reimbursement.
Banque de France covers the following costs:
