Banking Today and Senior$afe are two of the four courses needed to complete the Modern Banking Representative Certification issued by the Center for Financial Training & Education (CFTEA). The remaining two certification courses, Foundations in Banking and Customer Service are typically taken once someone is already working in the field. With special emphasis on career pathways within the field, these two courses set the context for the Teller position within a financial institution, thus providing a natural next step for the Teller Training graduates as they enter the financial industry. Employer partners will continue to be engaged to provide expert knowledge and perspectives. Training will be provided remotely in a largely asynchronous model. Students should expect to commit at least 3 hours a week to their assignments from May 4th-June 25th. The Banking Today textbook will be provided.
