Online Course Newsletter – June 2024

June 24, 2024


On June 26, we launched five new Community Reinvestment Act courses. These new courses cover the new Community Reinvestment Act Modernization Final Rules published in October 2024 that have an effective date of January 1, 2026. LMS Admins, please talk to your bank’s CRA Officer to determine which employees need to learn the new rules and the timing of when to take the courses in order to prepare for the changes coming. There is an Overview course, a Ratings course, and a course for the type of exam your bank is subject to (Small, Intermediate, Large). These new courses do not cover the current rules in place. If you have a banker who needs to learn what the current rules are, enroll them in the course “Regulation BB: Community Reinvestment Act.” This course will be available until December 31, 2025.

On June 26, the following new courses were launched:

  • Community Reinvestment Act – Overview

What’s Coming

Now that courses have been launched regarding the new Small Business Lending Rule and Community Reinvestment Act, we will be:

  • Looking at our banker request list to determine what new courses to add to the catalog.

  • Working on updating existing and creating new courses on fraud.

  • Creating micro-learning courses on various regulations.

Did You Know?

Did you know that we changed our subscription year for the Standard Plan, Custom Plan, and Bank Compliance Bundle from October through September to January through December? Typically, the June Online Course Newsletter reminds you that renewal invoices will be coming in July. However, that is not the case this year. Renewal invoices will be sent in October this year.
