BAI Introduces New Compliance Microlearning Courseware

CHICAGO – March 4, 2019 –BAI, a nonprofit independent organization that delivers the financial services industry’s most actionable insights, announced the addition of new microlearning solutions to its compliance training libraries for banks, credit unions, mortgage companies and nonbanks. These microlearning solutions are comprised of mini-courses, articles, resources and other tools, each taking five minutes or less to complete.

BAI designed the microlearning solutions specifically for compliance education by working with subject matter experts, leveraging regulator input to provide users with a special regulatory topic focus, quick compliance refresher or regulatory update. In each mini-course, learners will complete knowledge assessments to help track retention and demonstrate compliance during regulatory reviews. Additionally, the assessments serve to identify targeted follow-up training needs in key content areas, based on learners’ results.

“After seeing a great need for short, time-sensitive regulatory updates, we are excited to offer microlearning courses as an efficient and effective enhancement to our compliance training courseware,” said Ed Marcheselli, managing director of Learning and Development for BAI. “With these mini-courses, financial services employees can refresh their knowledge on critical regulatory information and adjust to regulatory updates quickly. This latest addition to our compliance training and professional development solutions builds upon BAI’s mission of providing financial services leaders the confidence and clarity they need to make smart business decisions every day.”

The first collection of mini-courses includes ten tracks that are applicable across a wide range of roles within a financial services organization.

BAI’s microlearning solutions include training on the following topics and more:

  • CIP: CDD And Beneficial Ownership
  • TRID: Good Faith, Tolerances, and Resetting Tolerances
  • HMDA Final Rule: Coverage Changes
  • BSA and AML: Risk Assessment
  • HMDA Final Rule: Disclosure and Data Submission
  • Money Laundering, Fraud, and Suspicious Activities
  • CTR Exemptions
