BankersHub Expands Remote Learning

Through First Marijuana-Related Business Certification

MADISON, Wis., April 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — In just a few years, cannabis has gone from a criminalized drug to a global $150 billion business. Legal marijuana will create a $40 billion boost for the U.S. economy this year alone, with the potential to surpass $100 billion in 2023. With 47 states and the District of Columbia legalizing some form of cannabis, a growing number of financial institutions are choosing to provide banking services to the cannabis industry.

Cannabis banking is working. Currently, 715 banks and credit unions serve the U.S. cannabis industry, and every state has at least one financial institution that serves cannabis businesses. “All financial institutions are confronted with a myriad of state and federal regulations that can not only intimidate bankers, but also expose the institutions, their Directors, Executives and staff to potential legal issues if not handled correctly,” says Dena Somers, Esq, Founder of FinReg Partners, noted legal authority on regulations and compliance in financial services.

BankersHub, the leader in financial services education for over 12 years, in conjunction with BankerCollege, its Learning Management System, has launched the industry’s first Cannabis Banking Professional (CBP) certification this week. “We’ve been on the forefront of cannabis banking education and are thrilled to launch the industry’s first ever certification for financial services professionals,” said Erin O’Donnell, Co-Founder of BankersHub. “In this climate of remote learning, we felt this on-demand self-paced training is the program institutions need to keep their staff up-to-date on compliance while at home.”

The 11-course certification program focuses on:

  • Understanding opportunities and risks for banking cannabis, Hemp, and CBD businesses
  • Banking strategy and marketing opportunities
  • Marijuana-Related Businesses (MRB), including cultivators, processors, testing facilities, dispensaries and more
  • Regulatory risks every institution must consider for developing a cannabis related compliance program
  • SAR filings, due diligence, monitory, training considerations, FINCEN guidance

“The industry is hungry for this information and expert guidance in compliance, strategy, risk and to help them navigate the challenges of banking cannabis related businesses,” said Michael Beird, Co-Founder of BankersHub.

AAP Preparatory Training Program

The Accredited Automated clearing house Professional (AAP) is awarded by NACHA, or the National Automated Clearinghouse Association, to recognize electronic banking payments professionals who have satisfied a comprehensive exam in October.

The AAP designation is recognized nationwide as an indicator of a person who has satisfied the industry requirements in payments compliance, regulatory standards, and industry case studies.

While not affiliated with NACHA or its Regional Payments Associations (RPA), this BankersHub training will provide any professional seeking to take the annual AAP a complete review and foundational training into the many complex areas covered by the AAP exam. Students also have the opportunity to retake any sections they feel the need to review again and there is no deadline or arbitrary date by which registrants must complete the course…it’s set up to be a true self-study.

Students taking the BankersHub AAP Preparatory Training program still must register for the exam with

NACHA. Open registration for the October 2022 exam starts Monday, December 20, 2021 and continues until October 1, 2022.

Now is the time to sign up for the BankersHub AAP Preparatory Training program and begin your path to getting your highly coveted AAP designation!

Five great reasons to go with our Banker Certification Programs:

Submit classes for AAP, CTP, NCP and/or CPE Credits

You do not just earn certification with the BankersHub program…you earn valuable credits needed to gain or renew professional designations. Taking these programs allows you to further your education and training towards these professional distinctions without having to incur travel expenses.

Take the sessions when it is convenient for you and fits your schedule

Because the Bankers Hub certification program is completely online, registrants take the courses and exams when it is convenient. Furthermore, there is not lost productivity and travel expense associated with live seminars and in-person training conducted in distant locations.

Choose the track that best meets your career needs

While payments professionals will likely find one of the three eBanking certification programs extremely valuable, many others are just looking for a deep dive into one or two areas of payments, such as Debit Cards, Wire Transfers, Checks or ACH. Finance and Accounting professionals will find the Bank Accounting Specialist Certification a critical component of their education. That is why BankersHub offers Certificates and Certifications that provide AAP or CPE credits along with valuable industry recognition.

eBanking Professional is an incredible value for in-depth content and knowledge

With 35 different sessions, the average cost per session is under $100, a value that is almost impossible to find for content presented by a nationally recognized speaker! And there are no hidden fees or add-on expenses!

Certification recipients get access to BankersHub Resource Library

Registrants who complete one of the three BankersHub Certification programs get access to the BankersHub Resource Library containing sample documents, best practices and resources that help you tackle daily challenges and projects.

WHAT’S NEW for 2023!

BankersHub offers Certifications in the areas of eBanking as well as accounting for financial institutions. For focused learning, BankersHub has Certificates available in topics like Debit Cards, Fraud, ACH, Wire Transfer and more.
