Online Training Newsletter – November 2023

Nov. 21, 2023

Important Information

  • In case you missed our email on Nov. 3, ICBA’s Community Banker University is now rebranding to ICBA Education to more closely align our educational resources with the Independent Community Bankers of America. If you haven’t logged into the Online Course Learning Management System yet, (excluding Premium & Cloud Delivery subscribers) please do so and check out our new logo and brand colors. If you log in and do not see any changes, you will need to clear your cache. Also, please notify your employees of the change so they know they are in the right place.

  • In case you missed our email on Nov. 14, when you log into the Online Course Learning Management System (LMS) and click on the Administration tab, you will see a new report titled, “Activity Report for Courses (excluding BDOT)”. This new report combines the existing two reports (All Courses and Select Courses) into one function. To learn how this report works, see Page 26 of the updated Administration Guide which can be found in the Administration tab of the LMS. The existing reports for All Courses and Select Courses will be removed from the system at the end of November. Please note: The new logo report does not include the Bank Director Training courses (BDOT). Those reporting functions will remain the same.

What’s New

  • On Oct. 18, the course “Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) was updated with the new insurance coverage rules related to Trust Accounts within the course and in the last newsletter it was stated the effective date is Jan. 1, 2024. This date is not correct, and the course has been corrected. The correct effective date is April 1, 2024. If you had anyone take the course between Oct. 18 and Nov. 14, please let them know of the appropriate effective date. We apologize for the error.

What’s Coming

  • Updated Cyber & Information Security courses – changes will be made Jan. 2, 2024, so that those assigned the course in 2023 will not get the same information if assigned again in 2024.

  • Five new courses will be developed regarding the Community Reinvestment Act Modernization Final Rule. These new courses will launch in the late first quarter of 2024. Titles include:

  • Regulation BB: CRA for Small Banks

  • Regulation BB: CRA for Intermediate Small Banks

  • Regulation BB: CRA for Large Banks

  • Regulation BB: CRA Overview

  • Regulation BB: CRA for Sr. Management & Directors
