Education & Training

Overview

CBA Offers a Variety of Educational and Training Offerings

The California Bankers Association provides our members with the educational offerings and conferences necessary to grow their businesses and to keep them profitable. One of the best investments any bank can make is in the ongoing education and training of its employees.

CBA has had a long-standing commitment to providing its members with timely, high quality, cost-effective learning. In 2005 we became your local American Bankers Association (ABA) training provider, and now offer the entire American Institute of Banking (AIB) continuing education curriculum.

Through a comprehensive program of conferences, banking schools, teleconferences, on-line courses, and seminars offered in flexible delivery formats, CBA can help bankers at every level develop their professional and technical skills, from entry level through executive management.

Overview

Seminars

Event

Compliance 2015
With all of the uncertainty and potential chaos, compliance programs need to move up a level to keep institutions out of trouble. CBA's first seminar of 2015 will do just that.

No risk facing U.S. banks today is more significant than regulatory compliance, and there is no reason to expect that the regulatory compliance risk will lessen anytime soon.

Several major Dodd-Frank regulations have yet to be written or fully implemented. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is expected to write rules on overdraft protection, prepaid cards, debt collection, and small business loan data collection requirements.

Event

2015 Loan Portfolio Management
This highly interactive training program is designed to provide participants with an array of ideas, tools and techniques to help you better manage and grow your loan portfolio

The key to success in 2015 and beyond

In an increasingly competitive environment, it is critical for bankers to be able to recognize opportunities among both new and existing customers. Prudent and profitable lending also requires sound skills and solid judgment in assessing potential borrower risk.

Event

2015 Call Report Preparation
During this comprehensive seminar, we will review each schedule of the quarterly call report with emphasis on the extensive 2014-2015 revisions, accounting changes and regulatory guidance.

In January 2015, the regulatory agencies will finalize several changes to the call report to provide additional data for safety and soundness or other public purposes. The effective date of the most of the changes will be March 2015.  Any subsequent changes proposed by the regulators affecting the 2015 call report will be covered in the session.

Have you ever seen one of our seminars or schools and said to yourself, “I’d like to send all of our bankers to that class, but between the registration and travel costs it doesn’t make sense.” Well we may be able to help you with that.

CBA, through unique partnerships with state banking associations across the country, can provide education on a wide variety of topics.  We have a network of consultants and training companies that we work with to create the curriculum that you see on our website, much of which we can deliver at your bank, and at a reduced cost!

Webinars
Webinars, Webcasts, Telebriefings and On Demand Seminars are a cost-effective and time-efficient way to maximize your training dollars.

CBA is now pleased to partner with two webinar providers:

ABA Diplomas and Certificates

For more than 100 years, bankers have taken advantage of ABA (and previously AIB) diploma and certificate programs to prepare for careers in banking or to enhance the skills and knowledge they already possess. Certificates build the skills necessary for a specific position in the bank and can be taken entirely online as a certificate curriculum. Diplomas provide broader and more in-depth coverage of banking as a profession. The programs are continually reevaluated and refined to reflect the current needs of bankers in their jobs today and changes in the industry.
