Why Schools of Banking?

Provides Valuable Resources

Lynda McGill

I attended the Bank Compliance School, offered by the Schools of Banking, years ago when I began my banking career as a bank internal auditor.  The week-long school provides the in depth, detailed knowledge base necessary for anyone entering the banking compliance world.

The annual Compliance Update School offered to graduates is a great way to keep up on current hot topics.  The manual provided at the Update School each year serves as a valuable resource not only for our audit department, but for the entire bank.  I highly recommend this school for any banker with a need or desire to gain a comprehensive understanding of banking regulations.

Deepen Your Understanding

Donita Clawson

I chose the Operations School because the topics matched my job responsibilities very well.  I have not seen any seminars or schools that cover so much material directly applicable to the operations area of the bank.  The school deepened my understanding of issues that I deal with every day. Where I once had a surface understanding of a topic, I now understand on a much deeper level and can apply that knowledge to daily banking decisions.

Hands-on Knowledge


As I’ve navigated in my banking career to more of a legal and compliance role, it was imperative that I gain additional knowledge in the compliance arena. Enter the Schools of Banking Bank Compliance School.  The amount of information given in this program is phenomenal to say the least.  The whole idea that “we don’t want to teach you to memorize the regulations, we want to teach you how to find the answers to the questions you are asked about them” means you get hands-on knowledge of the best ways to research a given topic and which regulations might apply. It’s an amazing program that I’d take again if given the chance… lots of little nuggets of information buried there!  Thank you to Schools of Banking for offering such a skills-based, on point program!
