          Problem Bank Management, Micropayment
          Gateway, Basel Current Challenges & New
          Developments, Cyber Security, Advanced MS Excel,
          Economic Policy Response of Covid 19, Artificial
          Intelligence in Financial Markets, ECM & BPM,
          Cloud & Digital Financial Services, etc. It is
          pertinent to mention that a few F2F trainings were
          converted into VILT like Corporate Dressing, Sukuk
          Restructuring, NLP, etc. One important development
          was the first webinar by NIBAF Karachi in
          December 2020 on Mental Health.
          As mentioned above, despite restoration of F2F
          trainings in October 2020, NIBAF continued to
          offer Virtual Instructor Led Trainings (VILTs) during
          Oct-Dec 2020 quarter. VILT sessions are now an
          essential component of trainings. However, the
          present infrastructure and slower recognition of
          virtual training instruments led to lower
          appreciation while comparing with F2F training
          modules. As data indicates, average training
          ratings fell down marginally during Oct-Dec 2020
          compared with last quarter. In addition, the
          participation in providing feedback on the
          trainings decreased during current quarter. While
          Jul-Sep 2020 quarter was mostly on Work From
          Home (WFH), current quarter witnessed a return to
          back to office environment. Resultantly, the
          nominations on planned trainings dropped
          significantly. After enforcement of 50% WFH
          instruction, we foresee better nominations in
          remaining half of FY21.
