New BSA Officer Training Part 1: Compliance, Risk Assessment, CTRs Exemptions, Forms & Regulator Expectations
1:00 pm – 2:30 pm MT

This Bank Secrecy Act webinar will begin with regulators’ BSA program expectations – as that is a primary concern for the board, management, and especially the BSA officer (new or seasoned).  It will also cover the more technical BSA data collection and reporting requirements.  Do you know what the daily BSA function truly entails?  Participants will learn which BSA program areas may need improvement and which are well in hand.  Being a BSA officer requires detailed technical knowledge, and this webinar will focus on what you need to know to ensure your institution complies with all requirements.
This webinar is the first of two in a series designed to provide training for the new BSA officer and a good refresher for more seasoned BSA personnel.  Because each webinar will cover different aspects of BSA, you are encouraged to attend both for a complete overview of BSA requirements.

  • Regulatory requirements and the exam manual
  • BSA risk assessment
  • BSA program requirements
  • General requirements for a currency transaction report and the CTR form
  • CTR exemptions and other CTR issues
  • Sections 314(a) and 314(b)
  • BSA requirements for purchases of cashier’s checks
  • BSA requirements for wires
    • The manual will provide additional background information far beyond what will be covered during the webinar and will provide new BSA officers with a roadmap to navigate the requirements
    • Employee training log
    • Interactive quiz

This informative session is designed for BSA officers who are relatively new to the position and the regulation. Others will find the information a good refresher – including management, and others with BSA responsibilities.

Continuing Education: Attendance verification for CE credits upon request.
