Banking 101 is Session I in the Essentials of Banking Program. While it is recommended that the individual attend all four sessions of the series to receive an entire overview of banking, each session’s material stands alone; one session is not a prerequisite for another.  From year to year, IBA plans to offer the same series beginning with any session. However, if you want your staff to learn about the material presented in a particular session, the program provides a thorough education and may be attended as a stand-alone class.

The program is a must for the newer community bank employee, specifically designed to provide a complete knowledge of banking principles and operations.  It is also geared toward veteran employees as a refresher course.  

This popular program also boasts a staff of instructors who are not only popular IBA speakers, but also some of the best presenters in the banking field including David Kemp and Dianne Barton.

PSI’s training programs are designed to “close the gap” between the banks’ needs and employees' skills. A philosophy of experiential learning and participant involvement in training led to the development of the company’s “TELL-SHOW-DO” training method that is skill-based rather than theory. The training limits lecture discussions to a maximum of 7-9 minutes. PSI’s training programs are described as energized, fast-paced, interactive, and results-focused.
