How ABA Can Help You Become Certified
Each of the nine professional certification programs in the fields of wealth management and trust, compliance and risk management, lending, bank marketing, and retirement services has its own requirements for pre-certification education, in addition to an Ethics statement and other factors.
ABA schools, conferences, and training all provide those needed hours in a format and venue of your choosing. We've even put together roadmaps, starting with the two most popular certifications - CRCM and CTFA - that clearly show your path to certification.
A recent survey of ICB members revealed these impressive facts:
- Eight out of ten say their ICB certification has led to recognition from executive management;
- Nearly three-quarters say their ICB certification earns them clout with clients;
- Nearly half say their ICB certification led to a bonus or pay raise; and,
- Nearly half say their ICB certification led to a new job or promotion.
Certification through ICB clearly makes an impact for these financial services profesionals. And it can for you too.

The New CFPB Mortgage Regulations
The recent release of final rules on a number of mortgage regulations mean your bank will soon have to change the way you run your mortgage business and train the bank's staff to be in compliance. And ABA can help.
We recently ran 6 telephone briefings, each covering an aspect of the new regulations - from the Ability-to-Repay to MLO compensation. Each briefing is now available as an audio recording you can use in the bank to inform everyone who needs to know. And each carries 2.5 CRCM continuing education credits. Learn More
