Who is BankersEdge℠

BankersEdge℠ is a nationally respected provider of interactive bank regulatory compliance training. Its materials are used by the OCC as the online training system for national bank examiners. To find out more about BankersEdge℠, please visit www.bankersedge.com.

Standard Online Training Program Package

Our Standard Online Training Program Package consists of three courses which will provide you with the background and knowledge of important regulatory areas you need to perform your job: Fair Lending Overview, Regulation CC and Bank Secrecy Act.

Each trainee can participate in one, two or all three of these courses. Each course will take approximately 1 - 1 1/2 hours to complete and require no prior compliance knowledge or experience. You proceed through the training at your own pace. Should you need to stop at any point, you can always come back later and pick up where you left off. You will find numerous exercises, examples and case studies throughout the course to reinforce and apply your knowledge. In addition, each unit starts with a pre-test and finishes with a post-test. Although the tests are scored, you need not be concerned if you don't pass on the first try - you can always review the material and take the test again.

A description of each course is listed below.

The Number One

Fair Lending remains at the forefront of an institution's compliance examination. This course is intended to provide the institution's lending personnel, as well as bank directors, with an understanding of the basic concepts regarding Fair Lending. It includes a brief overview of the following laws that relate to fair lending.

Fair Housing Act (FHA) - Prohibits discrimination in housing related lending activities against any person because of race, color, religion, national origin, handicap, familial status or sex.

Equal Credit Opportunity (ECOA) - Prohibits creditors from discriminating against credit applicants for gathering and evaluating credit information and requires written notification when credit is denied.

Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) - Ensures accuracy, fairness and privacy of consumer information.

Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) - Requires certain mortgage lenders to disclose data regarding their lending patterns.

Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) - Designed to encourage banks to help meet the credit needs of the community.

 

The Number Two

Expedited Funds Availability Act - Assures that deposited funds are made available in a reasonable period of time.

 

The Number Three

Specifies the institution's obligations in recognizing and reporting large currency transactions and suspicious activities. The course also presents sound "Know Your Customer" practices.

If a BCG member wishes to include more than 20 employees in the Standard Online Training Program, additional seats can be purchased in 20 seat increments for a nominal cost of just $200 per year.

Management Tools

As an additional enhancement, BCG members can order the BankersEdge℠ Management Administrative Reporting System (MARS) which automatically tracks training results and displays them in easy to use management reports. Please download the MARS Enhanced Reporting flyer here.
