Online Training Newsletter – December 2022

Dec. 20, 2022


Many banks' training calendars kick off in January and wrap up in December. And while you work hard to ensure employees complete all their training by year end, there may be a few courses that slip through the cracks.

We usually find that these “slips” are courses that are important for professional development, but not required by regulation.

The beginning of January is a good time to inventory incomplete courses and if necessary, do a little cleanup of the online training system – before you enroll in courses for the new training year.

Remember when you pull status reports, the report parameters go by Enrollment Date, not the year you intended the employee to complete the course. Also, remember that only one course title can be in an employee’s Current Enrollments. The system does not let you duplicate enrollments. For any courses that were not completed in 2022, that you would like your employees to complete in the new year you have two options:

  1. Unenroll them from the course and re-enroll them so that there is a newer enrollment date.

  2. Leave the course in the employees Current Enrollments and remember when you pull reports that you may have to enter an older start date.

If you have questions about this process, please feel free to reach out via email to Lori Braegelmann or call 320-352-7380.

What’s New

The following courses were updated Dec. 14, 2022, with the CFPB Regulation C changes to the closed-end mortgage collection and reporting threshold (from 100 to 25):

  • Compliance Issues for Commercial Lenders
  • Home Mortgage Disclosure Act: In Depth
  • Home Mortgage Disclosure Act: Practical Application

The following new courses were added to the Compliance – Lending Regulations Catalog, Dec. 14, 2022:

  • Homeowners Protection Act
  • Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure

Note to Premium Plan Subscribers: The new courses are not automatically placed into your catalog of courses. You can modify catalog names, add or remove catalogs, and fully control which courses are displayed within each catalog. Many of the Premium Plan clients have customized the catalogs based on their needs.

Because of this ability to customize, when new courses are added to the LMS, they are not automatically added into a catalog. This function is left to the LMS administrator to place the course in the specific catalog based on their bank's needs. To help with this process, we have included instructions on adding a course into a catalog of your choice. If you have any questions, reach out to Vubiz for technical assistance.

What’s Coming

The new course CAN-SPAM Act will launch in January 2023.
