Spotlight on Success

When I started with TowneBank, many of the CFTEA courses were recommended to give me a concrete banking foundation.  My manager was extremely helpful in recommending lending classes that would apply directly to my day-to-day activities to enhance my success in my new role.

Topics around lending and the character of a bank’s borrowers are something I apply in my daily work.  Learning from CFTEA is an extremely valuable tool to me.

Thomas Bruce, Branch Manager

I had never taken an online course before, so I didn’t know what to expect.  The materials and the instructor were great!  Honestly, the classes provided by CFTEA surpassed my expectations.  I never knew I could learn so much from online courses!

I consider my training to be a wonderful learning opportunity.  I consider CFTEA courses a wonderful learning opportunity and I am so pleased I was able to participate.

Patrick Leland, Deposit Support Specialist II, SBSI

During my career, I have encouraged employees to take advantage of what CFTEA has to offer—to build a foundation, confidence and be more engaged in their career.  As managers, we need to work with our employees to provide them the tools, education and opportunities to be successful.

As I reflect on my experiences with CFTEA, it is so much more than book knowledge.  CFTEA courses were the best fit for me.

Christine Morin, Senior VP, Chief Risk & Loan Operations Officer, Mascoma Bank

Having an online resource, like CFTEA’s MindEdge programs allow me to review course content and provide the flexibility to cover new material an hour or two at a time on my schedule.”

Amy Marshall, Norway Savings

CFTEA has a partnership program with St. Joseph’s College for a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a Banking Major.  It was great to see that there are eleven courses from CFTEA that transfer directly
