ABA Small Business Banker Certificate


The ABA Small Business Banker Certificate is primarily for branch managers and branch-based small business bankers who need the skills to build a relationship-centric sales approach, engage business customers to better understand their needs and appropriate solutions, handle objections, plan and execute the perfect sales call, and manage relationships post-sale. These bankers typically do not make credit decisions.

This curriculum provides small business bankers with a strategic approach to building trusted relationships with business customers as a means to retain and grow their book of business. It focuses on the process needed to identify sales prospects, offer value-added solutions, and close the deal.
