New ABA Certificate Program Helps Industry Providers Adopt Banker's Mindset


The American Bankers Association today launched a new online training curriculum to help industry providers develop and demonstrate a broad understanding of bank business lines and operations. ABA’s new Bank Solutions Provider Certificate program features self-paced courses on industry fundamentals, consumer and business bank products, consumer lending and small business banking that will help industry providers better know their bank customers – from the terminology they use to the constructs under which they operate.

“This program allows industry providers to think like a banker and truly understand the challenges and needs of their bank customers,” said Jim Edrington, ABA's chief member engagement officer. “An ABA Bank Solutions Provider education will give you a leg up on speaking you customer’s language and adequately demonstrating your company’s value proposition.”

The curriculum is designed to help industry providers enhance their knowledge of the language of bankers, core products, and the regulatory and ethical constraints under which banks operate. To earn the certificate, candidates must complete the following courses:

  • Banking Basics Suite (12 courses)
  • Ethical Issues for Bankers
  • Fundamentals of Consumer Lending Suite (2 courses)
  • Fundamentals of Small Business Banking Suite (2 courses)
  • Understanding Business Bank Products Suite (4 courses)
  • Understanding Consumer Bank Products Suite (8 courses)

Participants who complete the 6-hour program will earn a Bank Solutions Provider Certificate from ABA. To register or to learn more about this program, visit https://www.aba.com/training-events/online-training/bank-solutions-provider-certificate.
