Prepare your employees with ABA’s Banking Fundamentals
When a new employee starts at your institution you probably have a well-established training program, but do you have something that covers the basics about the industry? Consider adding ABA’s Banking Fundamentals to your roster. This newly redesigned curriculum features three four-week courses, completely online, covering everything an employee new to the industry would need to know. This course will not only help them learn about the role of banks in the U.S. economy, but also basics about products and services and major banking laws and regulations. Learn more about this program and all of the online classes available from the ABA through WBA.
