The training programmes of CAB are classified under five channels as described in next few pages
Urban Co-operative Banking
Human Resources Management
Financial Institutions and General Banking
In tune with the mandate of the CAB and the priority attached to the agricultural and rural sectors, the CAB plays a proactive role in providing training facilities in these areas. The CAB, keeping in view the structural transformation taking place in the Indian economy in general and the agriculture and SME sectors in particular, has been designing and conducting courses relating to Rural Development Projects and other subjects of topical relevance, such as, agri-exports, agri-business, micro finance, financing of SMEs, risk management in rural lending and functioning of the Rural Financial Institutions (RFIs). The CAB also conducts customised programmes in agricultural financing for the officers of banks.
Urban Co-operative Banking ( II )
Urban Co-operative Banking Channel caters to the capacity building needs of the Urban Co-operative Banks (UCBs) with special focus on training of the CEOs and the Directors with emphasis on strategic planning, corporate governance and compliance management. The CAB also conducts training programmes, seminars and conferences for the officers of UCBs and the auditors of the co-operative departments. The training programmes are designed to upgrade the skills in important functional areas like credit, investment & recovery management and IT with added focus on areas of regulatory and supervisory concerns.
Information Technology ( III )
Information Technology (IT) has become the cutting edge for efficient and reliable banking services in a highly competitive market and hence programmes relating to IT adoption by banks, particularly UCBs and RRBs, are being offered by the CAB . The CAB also aims at supplementing the initiatives taken by the RBI in the area of electronic payment and settlement systems besides organizing the Conference on ICT for Rural Financial Services / Financial Inclusion. The CAB also conducts programmes like IT Security and Audit, Project Management and Fraud Detection in Computerised operations.
Human Resources Management ( IV )
Creating and maintaining a learning environment through development of behavioural skills and attitudes on an ongoing basis is considered a key factor for the success of banking in a rapidly changing environment. Accordingly, the CAB organizes programmes on areas like Leadership, Emotional Intelligence and Management Development programmes to continually upgrade human capital for achieving organisational excellence.
Financial Institutions and General Banking ( V )
Financial Institutions and General Banking is an open-ended Channel which designs and conducts specialized / customized programmes for banks, other institutions and Government departments / Agencies which include programmes on Asset Securitisation, Risk Management and Basel II and KYC / AML guidelines. The endeavour is also to provide training facilities to the financial institutions not having in-house training facilities like SLFIs, NBFCs, Primary Dealers and Mutual Funds. Programmes are also conducted by the CAB in collaboration with international organisations like the UNDP.
