Examiner Training and Commissioning

The examiner training program has several objectives, but primarily strives to ensure that examiners receive the knowledge required to keep pace with recent and expected changes in the banking industry. Examiner training also encourages the use of skills to successfully conduct risk-focused examinations (e.g., critical thinking, strategic thinking, investigative, leadership, and interpersonal communication) while addressing the Systemís diverse supervisory responsibilities (e.g., large bank versus small bank examination responsibilities).
