Administrative arrangements

Thank you for your interest in the seminars prepared by the Czech National Bank. Important information for experts applying for the seminars is given below.

Application procedure

If you wish to nominate a member of staff of your bank for a seminar, please fill in the electronic application form available on the CNB website:

You can also use the paper version of the application form and send it to the CNB contact person by e-mail. 

The completed application form must reach the Czech National Bank by the closing date indicated for each seminar. Late applications will not be accepted.

Former participants should not reapply for the same seminar.

All candidates must obtain approval from their training department before completing the application form.

Selection procedure

Attendance at the CNB’s seminars is limited to a maximum of 16–18 participants. We usually accept 1–2 participants per country. If we receive more applications than there are places available, we will have to make a choice from among the applicants in attempt to include participants from as many countries as possible.

The seminars are mainly targeted at experts from partner central banks of the Commonwealth of Independent States, Eastern European countries and the Balkan States. Applicants from other central banks can be accepted only if there are places available.

The seminars are meant for central bank staff only. If you are not employed at a central bank, please do not respond, as we cannot accept your registration.

English language skills

All seminars will be held in English. Candidates need to speak English if they wish to benefit from a course. Interpretation services will not be available.


If participants require a visa to visit the Czech Republic, we suggest contacting the relevant Czech Embassy as soon as possible to ensure that the necessary formalities are completed in time. We can send an invitation letter at the participant’s request. We have no authority to assist participants with visas.


The Czech National Bank will arrange and pay for participants’ accommodation including breakfast at a hotel and cover their expenses relating to lunches, coffee breaks and social events during the seminar.

Seminar duration

The seminars organised face-to-face usually start on Monday at 9 a.m. and normally end at 4 or 5 p.m. The virtual seminars usually start on Monday at 9 a.m. and end at 1 or 2 p.m. Participants are expected to attend the entire seminar and should not schedule appointments during the seminar.


The CNB is ready to share its know-how on specific topics and to welcome groups of experts for a single brief visit or on line on a tailor-made basis. If you are interested in any area of expertise, please contact us.


The Czech National Bank will provide participants with accommodation.

Accommodation is booked from the night before to the night after the seminar. The costs relating to your hotel stay during this period will be covered by the CNB (including breakfast and excluding personal expenses – phone calls etc.).
