The Federal Reserve International Training and Assistance programs have a new registration process effective 2019!
Registration for all ITA programs require an online application with an official endorsement letter. Each participant is required to complete one application per program.
Applications will be reviewed as they are received within the registration period. All programs will be available for registration 12 weeks before the listed start date of the program and will close two weeks before the start of the program.
Please note: Programs have limited enrollment, therefore we may not be able to accommodate all eligible applicants due to space limitations.
In order to attend a training program, please complete and submit the course application via the link found on the Courses page. Once an application has been submitted, you will receive an acknowledgement via e-mail.
Official Endorsement Letter
All applications must include a signed, scanned, and uploaded official endorsement letter from the governor, chief executive, or head of training department of your institution. Applications will not be accepted without the proper official endorsement letter. If applicants experience technical issues uploading the endorsement letter along with their applications, please contact BSRInternationalTraining@frb.gov.
Endorsement letters should be addressed to:
Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System
Attn: Mr. Amol B. Vaidya

20th and Constitution Ave NW
Washington, D.C. 20551
As part of the Federal Reserve security measures, each international applicant is required to provide his or her date of birth, passport number, and country of passport issuance for entry into the building. Failure to provide the correct, or necessary information, may result in the forfeiture of a program seat.
There is no tuition charged to participants for Federal Reserve International Training programs.
The Federal Reserve does not make lodging arrangements for participants attending any of our catalog-listed programs. It will be up to the participants to arrange their own accommodations.
For those attending the joint World Bank/International Monetary Fund/Federal Reserve "Conference on Policy Challenges for the Financial Sector" and the "Seminar for Senior Bank Supervisors from Emerging Economies" only, seminar organizers will secure blocks of rooms at select area hotels. It will be up to the participants to make their own reservations with these hotels and provide a credit card guarantee.
Pre-course materials will be made available after an application has been received and approved. Pre-course materials will be provided in a link sent to participants via e-mail. Please note that pre-course materials may not be available more than 4 weeks before the start of a program.
Business formal attire is recommended for all programs offered in the catalog. Tennis shoes, T-shirts, blue jeans, shorts, sandals, and flip-flops should not be worn.
Participants in Federal Reserve international training programs are expected to be in attendance at each session of the program. Please notify an ITA staff member of unavoidable absences. Unexplained absences from a training session will be reported to the proper authorities.
Travel and Medical Insurance
Please note that the Federal Reserve does not provide any insurance coverage for participants traveling to, from, or staying in the United States. Please ensure that there is adequate medical insurance coverage in place for your needs. Any medical costs incurred in the United States will be the responsibility of the participant.
To cancel participation in a Federal Reserve international training program, please contact BSRInternationalTraining@frb.gov. If participation is not cancelled and the participant does not report to the training facility on the first day of the program, security procedures require us to notify the proper authorities, including the U.S. visa issuing agency.
