The Directors’ Education and Accreditation Programme (DEAP) is an advanced director training course, aimed at preparing directors for the important role that they play in the governance of corporations.  The DEAP was developed by the Chartered Governance Institute of Canada (CGIC), formerly Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators/Chartered Secretaries Canada (ICSA/CSC), in partnership with the law firm of Borden Ladner Gervais, and with contributions from AON Canada. 

The inaugural programme was offered in June 2007, in St Kitts-Nevis and Saint Lucia, by Eastern Caribbean Securities Exchange Limited (ECSE), in collaboration with the ICSA/CSC, as a part of the ECSE’s efforts to promote good corporate governance standards in the Caribbean. The programme was subsequently rolled out in Toronto, Canada, in November. To date, Caribbean programmes have been held in Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Grenada, Jamaica,
St Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia and Trinidad and Tobago. The DEAP is now also being offered online in the Caribbean.

Registration in the programme is open to all directors, corporate secretaries, CEOs, and other senior executives of public and private companies, as well as public sector (statutory) corporations. Legal practitioners, accountants, chartered secretaries, and other professional corporate advisers, as well as persons aspiring to directorships are also invited to participate. 

The details of the course are as follows:

Programme: The course will be delivered virtually, in three modules, namely, i) Governance for Directors, ii) Finance for Directors, and iii) Strategy and Risk Management.

Duration: 3 days, with 1 full day learning workshop for each module, consisting of presentations, discussions, and case studies.

Assessment: At the end of each day there will be a knowledge assessment exercise (completed in class). Participants must be successful on each module’s knowledge assessment to be granted the accreditation.

Faculty: Facilitators will be drawn from a team of experienced Canadian and regional academics and practitioners.

Material: The course material will be provided to participants in electronic form after full registration.

Location: On-Line. The programme is being held online to enable participation from any geographic location.
