The Indiana Bankers Association has partnered with The Rechel Group, Inc. to develop “CTOPS” (Certified Tellers Organized to Prevent Scams) a fraud detection program specifically designed for front line staff, and to promote fraud detection skill sets that compliment the evolving role of branch personnel. Consultative processes necessary to grow the bank’s customer base are integrated into a new and innovative fraud detection mindset that compliments and utilizes customer service concepts to detect fraud.

With fraud schemes changing in the blink of an eye, and automated systems requiring input and response protocols from front line staff, this Certified Teller program will provide innovative ways to develop strategies and skills to ferret out the most devious fraud schemes, while providing customers guidance and direction beyond what they are providing today. 

This seminar qualifies as part of the IBA Certified Teller Program.  In order to maintain this professional certification, tellers are required to recertify annually.
