Webster Bank has selected The Edcomm Group to enhance Webster’s Focus On Compliance program for its bank-wide training needs.

Edcomm will expand Webster’s already successful compliance training, provided by Edcomm, by incorporating Webster Bank-specific policies and procedures. They will also implement Edcomm’s System Simulation Training (SST) to demonstrate various branch functions, including the processing of Currency Transaction Reports (CTRs).

Focus on Compliance, a computer-based, distance-learning program, can be delivered via Internet, Intranet or CD-ROM. The program teaches banking compliance using easy-to-understand language in an interactive, self-paced format. Participants learn from their own perspective, with a curriculum customized to their position. Focus on Compliance covers: Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), Anti-Money Laundering (AML), USA PATRIOT Act, OFAC, Privacy, Reg P, Gramm-Leach Bliley Act, Right to Financial Privacy, Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), Reg CC & Check 21, Reg D, Reg E, Reg Z, Truth in Lending, FCRA, FACT Act, HMDA, CRA, and Bank Bribery, among others. The program also includes a quick reference guide to all banking regulations, as well as a glossary of terms and a library of reference materials.

Edcomm’s Focus on Compliance training program with System Simulation Training (SST) allows students to learn at their own pace in a non-threatening, simulated environment that looks and feels like the real system. By using Edcomm’s award-winning “Observe-Practice-Demonstrate” model, students are able to execute realistic transactions, and learn an assortment of tasks that are fundamental to fulfilling the requirements of today’s banking staff.
