FDIC Technical Assistance Video Program - Updated December 20, 2013

"When I met with bankers throughout the country last year as part of our Community Banking Initiatives, we had frank discussions on issues facing the industry and heard many constructive suggestions for actions the FDIC could take that would be helpful to bankers. One of the most common suggestions was for more technical assistance."

FDIC Chairman Martin J. Gruenberg

The Technical Assistance Video Program is a series of educational videos designed to provide useful information to bank directors, officers and employees on areas of supervisory focus and regulatory changes.

This first installment of six videos is designed to provide new bank directors with information to prepare them for their important fiduciary role. Three of the videos address the roles and responsibilities of a director and the other three videos provide information about the FDIC's Risk Management and Compliance Examination processes.

A second series of videos, added on June 28, 2013, is a virtual version of the FDIC's Directors' College Program that regional offices deliver throughout the year. The initial training program consists of six modules with videos on interest rate risk, third-party risk, corporate governance, the Community Reinvestment Act, information technology and the Bank Secrecy Act.
