Free Banking Webinars 

Welcome to the Compliance Cohort, where we offer quite a bit of free banking webinars. The Compliance Cohort is an online educational site where we provide free articles and short training videos (known as Compliance Clips) on all topics of regulatory compliance. Below, you will find a number of our free Compliance Clips (video webinars) on a variety of banking compliance topics. These training videos just a few of the recent resources our (free) members have access to. When you sign up for free membership, you can easily search for all of our free training videos (webinars) and articles on the “membership dashboard” page.

We have designed the Compliance Cohort as a resource for compliance professionals in banks, credit unions, mortgage companies, and any of the other trenches where compliance folks dwell.  Specific to free banking webinars, there are a couple of things you should know. First, our Compliance Clips are designed to be short and easy-to-understand videos, typically 3-5 minutes in length. In making these quick and easy-to-understand webinar/videos, we have chosen to take a "virtual classroom" approach to our training where each video and webinar we publish includes both a visual of the instructor as well as slides that help lead you through the topic we are discussing.  The idea is to bring the feel of a live seminar to your office or wherever you are at.

In addition to our free banking webinars (Compliance Clips), we have written many different comprehensive articles that go into great detail on all aspects of banking compliance. In writing these articles, we do our best to use simple to understand layman’s terms to explain some extremely complex and challenging topics. Our free membership allows members to search for and view our comprehensive (and free) articles.

Finally, our free membership includes links to a number of resources. like banking regulations. Our Banking Regulations List and Links page directs our members to the actual rules on most banking regulations. In addition to this, a weekly email summary of new articles and videos is sent to each free member and will generally include any new free resources we become aware of, such as free banking webinars (like those that are often hosted by the Federal Reserve or CFPB.

You can learn more about our free membership here.

The Compliance Cohort should be in every Compliance Officer’s “library of information”. I use the articles for training purposes at least once a month if not more frequently. Every article is written in a manner that is easily understood, sometimes with humor that makes it enjoyable to read. Compliance enjoyable? It can be with the right tools. Don’t hesitate to sign up. You won’t regret it.

Free Banking Webinar Links and Other Resources

We understand that you found this webpage because you were looking for free banking webinars. While we hope that you will find our free video training resources on this site beneficial, we wanted to also provide you with a few other free banking webinar resources that might be beneficial to you. Here is a list of some of our favorite free banking webinar links:

I found the Compliance Cohort accidentally while poking around on the internet. I felt like I discovered a hidden treasure! The site is full of well written, easy to read and understand articles concerning a wide variety of compliance topics all of which are supported by regulatory citations. In addition, there are videos with the same solid content. And... the articles and videos are free! The bonus hiding in this treasure is Adam’s ability to remind us that, though we’re dealing with a serious subject, it’s okay to have fun and enjoy learning while we work! I found Compliance Cohort when it was brand new and I’ll keep it in my favorites until I retire!

How to Get more Free Banking Webinars

There is no cost for basic membership and Cohort Members receive a number of great benefits:

  • Weekly email updates

  • Member-only videos

  • Member-only articles

  • Member-only offers

  • Special e-mail alerts

Weekly Email Updates

First, members will be automatically enrolled to receive regular email summaries.  Provided once a week, these updates will ensure members are up-to-date on the happenings going on at the Compliance Cohort.  Our goal is to help keep members in the know of our recent postings as well as any compliance changes that take place.

Compliance Clips (Member-Only Videos)

Our "Compliance Clips" have proven to be the best benefit of Basic Membership.  These short, on-demand (free) bank training videos provide an amazing value to members as they are presented in a "virtual classroom" approach that provides bite-sized learning.  Members find this approach significantly helps with comprehension of the material being taught.  Typically lasting 3 to 5 minutes, we present applicable topics as we see fit, but generally include existing regulations as well as a "heads up" on upcoming changes.  While a few Compliance Clips are available to non-members, Basic Membership provides access to many more videos than what are available to the public.  Access to our Compliance Clips is often cited as the main reason for becoming a new member. 

Member-Only Articles

The third benefit of our Basic Membership is a number of member-only articles.  These articles are presented in a "layman's terms" approach where we do our best explain complex rules in a way that anyone could understand.  While some articles are available to the public through our blog, members enjoy a number of articles available only through membership.

Topic Catalog

When logged into their dashboard, members have access to a "topic catalog" where articles and videos are organized by topic.  This is beneficial for members who may only be responsible for a specific area of compliance such as lending compliance, deposit compliance, or BSA.  

Member-Only Offers

Another benefit of our free Basic Membership is that members get a variety of  discounts and member-only offers.  For example, our monthly Master Class (which is included with Premium Membership) normally sells for $349 each but is available to Basic Members at a discounted rate of $299 per class.

Special Alerts

Finally, Basic members benefit from receiving certain special compliance alerts.  These occasional alerts vary in volume based on the need, and may include things like new regulations or a reminder of needed compliance action.

I definitely would recommend the Compliance Cohort to anyone that has a need to know compliance information. The weekly summaries are great...they are not real lengthy but to the point and always include the citation from the regulations or commentary to support what is being discussed. Also, Adam is very knowledgeable and does an EXCELLENT job of explaining the information and putting it in language that is easy to understand. I look forward to my weekly summary every Friday!
