Thank you for subscribing to ICBA’s Community Banker University Online Training Center. We hope that you find the training informative and beneficial for your community bank. Online training is one of the easiest ways for community banks to educate their staff on required regulations, job functions and a multitude of other areas such as personal development, management and customer service.

At Community Banker University, we strive to provide you with the most up to date information in an easy to learn environment. If you have not noticed yet, as of Oct. 1, several of the catalogs within the online training system have changed and the courses have been reorganized within them. We hope that you find this new organization easier to find courses within their specific subject areas.

We will send you this newsletter on a quarterly basis informing you of new courses added to the online training center as well as updated course content. You will also get a glimpse into some of the other topics we are working on to make your learning experience a great one.
