Education

Professional development plays a vital role in banking today. When bankers are well-trained for their jobs, everyone wins -- the bankers, their banks, shareholders and, of course, customers. Recognizing the critical importance of training, the Oklahoma Bankers Association offers an extensive lineup of seminars and schools covering almost every area of bank operations. See our events calendar for upcoming education events. We also provide timely Web seminars.

The Bank Trainers Conference is the ONLY “train the trainer” conference
designed specifically for bank and credit union training professionals. Attendees
acquire new training delivery techniques, a vast network of colleagues, and new
tools and resources designed to make their jobs easier. The reviews from past
attendees are impressive, including “the content was spot on for my role and far
exceeded my expectations” and “I was able to get something from EVERY
session I attended.”
