All AIB courses, certificates, diplomas and more are now part of ABA Training and are brought to you through the WVBankers, your Local ABA Training Provider.

ABA Diplomas & Certificates

For more than 100 years, bankers have taken advantage of ABA certificate and diploma programs to prepare for careers in banking and to enhance the skills and knowledge they already possess.  Certificates build the skills necessary for a specific position in the bank and can be taken entirely online as a certificate curriculum.  Diplomas provide broader and more in-depth coverage of banking as a profession.  Important Notice!  Diplomas were discontinued as of December 31, 2017. The diplomas have been replaced with certificates that will have titles that are similar to the old diplomas.

For a complete description of each course, follow this link and indicate member or non-member.

Once you have completed all the courses for the certificate, complete the worksheet and email Amanda or request a transcript.  After verification, you will be notified to mail a check for $25.00 to WVBankers, 3601 MacCorkle Ave. SE., Suite 100, Charleston WV  25304 and your certificate will be ordered.
