The acronym NOSS stands for National Occupational Skills Standards. NOSS is a document that outlines the dexterity required of an employee working in Malaysia at a certain level of employment to achieve specific skills.
The Accreditation of MSB Compliance Officers Using NOSS
As part of our capacity building initiatives under the MAMSB Strategic Blueprint, the Association had laid out plans for key resources in the industry to be accredited. In this regard, the Association was approved government funding by the Department of Skills Development under the Ministry of Human Resource to accredit all MSB staff through the development of the National Occupational Skills Standard (NOSS) for all levels of staff namely the Chief Executive Officers (CEOs), Directors, Managers, Compliance Officers and Frontline staff. The development of the NOSS for MSB would change the face of the industry as the NOSS will be used to prepare new joiners for their role in a MSB company as well as be a career roadmap for staff looking to progress in their career within this industry.
The NOSS for MSB industry was developed with the help of panel ‘experts’ comprising of MSB staff from all levels as stated above, representatives from Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) and Finance Accreditation Agency (FAA). MSB staffs that were chosen to be part of the panel experts were required to have a minimum of 5 years of experience and be willing to share their expertise and knowledge.
