|The London Chamber of Commerce & Industry International Qualifications (LCCIIQ) announced the opening of its new office at 339, Galle Road, Colombo 03 at a ceremony titled Renew '09 held at the Hilton Residencies.
Mr. Ng Guan Lee, Business Development Manager for LCCIIQ - Asia, said the opening of the office in Sri Lanka signified his company's intention to build on the work already done in the country with the aim of providing access to a larger number of students who wish to obtain the globally recognised LCCII qualification. "This was to be accomplished", he said, "by allowing LCCIIQ Recognised Training Centres (RTCs) and students to access training resources and learning material like How To Pass books in each subject and CDs, while being able to apply for exams with ease."

LCCIIQ RTCs may now gain access to past paper Questions & Answers On-line, while exam results may also be downloaded, saving time and preventing delays in obtaining results.

Qualified and experienced corporate trainers may now use specially prepared LCCIIQ training material and provide certification from UK to participants of their programmes. The Introductory Certificate in Marketing (ICM) unveiled by Mr. Ng Guan Lee at Renew '09, is one if many exciting products.

The price of US$ 25 which includes the exam fee and an illustrated work book (containing practice questions and tasks, which can be completed in groups) is a super sell. The ICM Product is being looked at by corporates and trainers with great interest.
