The Federal Reserve System's training program for assistant examiners is set forth in the Examiner Commissioning Program. Assistant examiners choose from one of three specialty areas (safety and soundness, consumer affairs, or information technology). The assistant examiner is eligible to be considered for commissioning after completion of three levels of course work, including passing a proficiency examination and demonstrating job-related proficiency to the satisfaction of their Reserve Bank management.
The program provides significant training on internal controls, information technology, risk management, risk-focused examination techniques, and integrated supervision concepts. In addition, the curriculum is designed to enhance the individual's analytical, critical-thinking, and decision making skills.
The course descriptions linked below outline course content and learning objectives for each course. Many courses contain precourse work, which must be completed by the participant before the first day of class.
To some extent, the courses and descriptions will vary from year to year. Please feel free to contact me with questions.
