About ICBA Certification

View My Certification Portfolio 

ICBA certification programs are designed 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 certification board establish baseline criteria for knowledge to be certified 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, comptency testing is measured after completion. Annual continuing professional education is then required to ensure participants remain current.

For banking customers, this means that ICBA certification is a reassuring sign of professionalism to look for when selecting a banker. For you, that makes your ICBA certification an important selling point and marketing tool. It's an independent, third-party testament to your skills and abilities.
