ABA Personal Banker Certificate


The ABA Personal Banker Certificate provides a blend of banking knowledge and skills for Personal Bankers, sometimes referred to as Financial Services Representatives or Financial Services Associates, to enable them to provide full-service banking to customers by offering appropriate credit, deposit, and other banking services that meet customer needs and expectations.

Personal Bankers often drive the sales and service function in the bank office or branch, and call on potential and current customers to develop new business relationships and to support customer retention strategies. They require broad product knowledge, including specific understanding of the different types of retail deposit and loan products, all of which are covered in this curriculum.
