The AFB provides training courses for its members on banking related topics, with a focus on what is important to foreign banks operating in the UK. In order to ensure this, the AFB recently surveyed members to see what areas of training they were interested in and are using this information to plan future training courses. We aim to offer a variety of course types ranging from courses of a single session to courses which are studied over the course of a year that lead to a formal qualification.

The AFB is a trusted provider of training courses to members as we actively engage with our training partners to ensure that courses are bespoke and relevant, members have the opportunity to network with fellow professionals and courses are always competitively priced.  All course participants are invited to provide feedback on our training courses and the feedback Is overwhelmingly positive.

Please see below for courses that we are currently running and look out for announcements of future courses.
