The Center for Financial Training in cooperation with The Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS) and The Graduate School of Banking at Colorado (GSBC) now offers online education specifically designed for lenders, all personnel involved in the funds management process, bank personnel involved in any aspect of the bond portfolio, accounting personnel, individuals involved in asset liability management, or recent college graduates.
The GSBC program is an online campus that delivers up-to-date information. After successfully completing eight GSBC core courses, CFT students may be eligible for the Financial Institutions Professional designation from GSBC. This designation will permit the student to enter the three-year GSBC program beginning in the second year. Granting of this designation is at the discretion of the GSBC Board of Trustees.
HOW IT WORKS
Once the registration form has been received at the CFT office, the registration will be submitted to CSBS.
Once the student’s enrollment has been processed through CSBS, he/she will receive directions for signing on for an online orientation module and browser test. The orientation requires approximately 60 minutes to complete online. The student can expect to interact with the instructor in a continuous, threaded discussion throughout the course. There will also be assignments which will involve research on the Internet. There will be an exam at the end of the course which will be taken online. The student’s grade will be based on course participation (one third of grade) and score earned on the final exam (two thirds of grade).
