Member banks must meet three requirements for in-house training:  
(1) A site conducive to learning, such as a bank training program room or board room.
(2) A qualified instructor.  ABA keeps a list of qualified instructors, or bank employees may make instructor recommendations.
 (3) A minimum number of participants. In-house training is a cost-effective way to train your employees.
