According to her, the training programme would cover a wide range of issues, such as Capital Adequacy in the Securities Market, Dispute Resolution Procedures, Adjudication in the Capital Market, Investigative Techniques and key issue,Surveillance Techniques in Emerging Capital market, Legal and Policy Framework for Capital Market Development and Registration of Broker-Dealers and licensing of Employees of Broker-Dealers.

Onyiuke Explained that investor confidence is essential to the growth and development of the capital market worldwide. She added that an astute investor is interested in the regulatory framework of the market, integrity of the regulators and the operators as these issues amongst others define the investor protection strategy of a capital market. She revealed that Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC)is expected to present a paper on their efforts to tackle money laundering.

In her response, the Chairlady of Investment Securities Tribunal Dr. (Mrs) Nnenna Orji stated that it will be the first time U S SEC is coming to Nigeria to train market operators. She said it was an opportunity for stockbrokers to horn their crafts in line with international standards.
Orji emphasised that this has become necessary because the word now is a global village as what affects one affects all.

The Chairman, Planning Committee and member of IST, Alhaji Aminu Dangana disclosed that in 2004, SEC negotiated with US SEC for the training programme and is happy that many market operators will benefit immensely.
He said SEC intends to globalised its activities taking a cue from NSE. Also speaking, a representative of Direstor-General SEC, Mr. Isaiah Akor Idoko urged all market operators to attend in order to get the training and knowledge as the opportunity may not present itself.
