Welcome to C-PEC
Centre for Professional Excellence in Cooperatives
A Centre for Professional Excellence in Cooperatives (C-PEC) has been set up within the Bankers Institute of Rural Development (BIRD) to streamline training systems in Cooperative Credit Structure (CCS) which would ensure availability of professional staff with the cooperatives for efficient delivery of banking and financial services. This CCS training and certification system is conceptually a part of the overall training strategy visualized for sustainability of the Cooperative Reform Programme and is being implemented within the overall “Institutional Development” mandate of NABARD.
The Centre, initially started in 2009 with support of GIZ under “Rural Financial Institutions Programme”, till 30 September 2015. From 1st October 2015, it is being supported by NABARD under Co-operative development fund (CDF).
