Ways to Learn



IBAT provides educational training specific to community banking. Our goal is to meet the community banker needs with a variety of different delivery methods.

Compliance Seminars: In conjunction with Professional Bank Services (PBS), IBAT offers the best compliance training available. Programs on Deposit Compliance, HMDA, Lending Disclosure, Loan Compliance, and much more, are offered as well as Compliance Updates.

Management Seminars: In The Texas Independent Banker magazine we often publish articles about why management skills are so very necessary in today's high tech world. These programs, co-sponsored with the Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA), help your bank achieve the management training needed to compete in today's marketplace.

Summit Programs: These programs are intense one- and two-day programs on a variety of topics for all levels of bank employees. They are designed to give participants a thorough understanding on a given topic.


In conjunction with Financial Education, Inc., telephone/webcast seminars are a very economical way to train your staff because for one low price, everyone in the bank can sit in on the program with the use of a speakerphone and a computer.
