About Cohort Membership

Compliance Cohort is an online education site designed to assist compliance professionals in banks, credit unions, mortgage companies, and the other trenches that compliance folk live.  Our primary focus is to provide online compliance education though on-demand videos, articles and a few other resources.  

Traditional compliance training is often delivered through either live seminars (which require travel but allow attendees to see the presenter) or faceless webinars (which don't require travel but allow attendees to hear the material at a time that works best for them).  Our "virtual classroom" approach combines the benefits of live seminars with the benefit of on-demand webinars as we do our best to bring the classroom to the attendee.

Our Cohort instructors have one main goal: to make life easier for compliance professionals.  This means that we do everything we can to provide simple explanations, real life examples, and application to the complex world of regulatory compliance.  We also try to offer a few laughs to an otherwise depressing topic. 

Our philosophy is to take a three-part approach to compliance education: educate, empower, and entertain.  While the first two elements of our 3-E approach are fairly straightforward, the entertainment component is not always an easy task when dealing with an inherently boring subject like regulatory compliance.  Therefore, we do everything we can to keep our videos entertaining which may include some random stories or some quirky jokes.  Though we aren't professional comedians or entertainers, our goal is to bring a slightly lighter approach to a very serious topic.

While our site contains many public articles and videos, compliance professionals get an even greater value when they become a Cohort Member.  We currently have two membership options: 1)Basic membership and 2) Premium Membership.  Basic members get access to many member-only videos and articles while Premium members receive in-depth compliance training as well as a variety of tools they need to keep up their compliance expertise.

We strongly believe that the value provided in a Compliance Cohort Membership will greatly benefit any compliance professional, like you, and look forward to having you join our Compliance Cohort community. 

Oh, and did we mention that basic membership to the Cohort is absolutely free?

Basic Membership (Free)

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 "topic catalog"

  • 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 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.

Premium Membership (Coming Soon!)

Coming soon!!!  In addition to all of the benefits of our free, Basic Membership, premium members will receive significantly more value.  Specifically, Premium Membership will have a focus on the "how to" side of practical real-world compliance.  If those in the Basic Membership appreciate the value they receive, they will love the added benefits of Premium Membership.
