Risk. Identify Risk. Evaluate Risk. Control Risk. Mitigate Risk. Prioritize Risk.

In today’s community bank, the concept of risk and managing the bank’s exposure to risk is continually top-of-mind. Designed exclusively for community bankers, the new ICBA Risk Management Institute offers participants an opportunity to enrich and affirm important knowledge of risk components influencing a community bank’s function and soundness. Minimizing risk to maximize potential is a vital initiative for every community bank. This new certification program will focus on strategies surrounding bank governance, credit risk, interest rate risk, liquidity risk, operational risk, compliance risk, and legal risk.  The program will also include comprehensive dialogue bringing all the risk elements together to discuss the necessary elements for a successful enterprise risk management (ERM) framework.

To earn the ICBA Risk Management Certification, participants must successfully complete:

  • The Risk Management Pre-Course Assignment
  • Attend the entire Institute program
  • An optional pre-work session will be held the day prior to the start of the program for participants desiring additional education. This session is highly recommended for all participants, especially those with less than three years’ experience in risk management or wanting a refresher on the foundational concepts of risk management.
  • Successfully pass the certification examinations
