ABA Diplomas & Certificates

ABA Credentials Help Build Your Career

For more than 100 years, bankers have taken advantage of the diploma and certificate programs sponsored by the American Bankers Association (ABA) to prepare for careers in banking or 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. The programs are continually reevaluated and refined to reflect changes in the industry and the needs of bankers in their jobs today. 

Click links below for a list of course requirements. When you’ve completed all requirements, please submit a Diploma application:  Diploma Application Form (pdf).  All Certificates may be completed through a self-paced online curriculum, and a Certificate of Completion may be printed when all coursework is done.


Important: If you are currently working toward any of the diplomas listed below, you will have until December 31, 2017 to complete all requirements and request your diploma.


Diploma Requirements and Eligibility:  Successful completion of required and elective courses with a C average or better; grades of A, B, C, or D in all courses of 2 or more credits.  You may use courses and their corresponding credits for more than one diploma or certificate, if applicable.  Course requirements may be met through the ABA Online course catalog or the ABA eLearning course catalog.
