ICBA certification programs are designe
d to raise the standards of professionalism in the industry and give consumers a consistent stamp of approval to look for when selecting a banker.

 

To make this happen, respected members of the ICBA certification board establish baseline criteria in several areas of specialization. Then, experienced, nationally recognized instructors create training programs that target the needs of community banks based on those criteria. Finally, competency testing is measured after completion and a certification designation is granted. Annual continuing professional education is then required to ensure participants remain current.

 

ICBA Education is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors. State boards of accountancy have final authority on the acceptance of individual courses for CPE credit. Complaints regarding registered sponsors may be submitted to the National Registry of CPE Sponsors through its website: nasbaregistry.org.
