ABA Training is a comprehensive source for training and education available through the American Bankers Association (ABA) or previously through the American Institute of Banking (AIB). All AIB courses, certificates, diplomas and more are now part of ABA Training, and are brought to you through The Center for Financial Training & Education Alliance, your Local ABA Training Provider.
ABA Training includes extensive learning opportunities suited to specific job roles, in both facilitated and self-paced online formats, as well as in person. Online training delivers unmatched content that meets the needs of today’s learners and the changing demographics of the banking industry. Many courses meet the requirements of the Institute of Certified Bankers (ICB) for exams or continuing education credits.
Flexible and cost-effective, ABA’s online training opportunities are continually updated to provide a superior learning experience that can be accessed from anywhere, at any time.
Facilitated Online Training Courses
These courses are available in a virtual classroom environment, complete with fellow students, instructor guidance and feedback. Facilitated online training courses offer banking-specific content supported by:
- Experienced instructors with banking expertise
- Exercises and exams to validate your understanding
- A flexible weekly schedule with no set day or time
Self-Paced Online Training Courses
These courses offer the greatest flexibility in skill-building and practical application as they are independent study and include real-life practice scenarios. Self-paced online training courses offer:
- Rich graphics and inter-activities in mobile-ready courses
- Frequent self-checks to measure comprehension
- Built-in-tools and job aids to support ongoing learning
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 many 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.
ABA Textbooks and Reference Materials
ABA textbooks support the ABA Training curriculum. They are used in the delivery of facilitated online courses and can also be used to delivery training in your bank. Reference materials in compliance and trust support the ICB exam prep courses and are also standalone resources for professionals in those disciplines.
