How Do You Get a BSA Certification?


Quick Answer

To obtain a Bank Secrecy Act, or BSA, certification as a credit union volunteer, you need to complete an annual BSA training. The National Association of Federal Credit Unions offers BSA training certification for board members’ participation in Annual Conference and Solutions Expo BSA sessions, and in Credit Union Board of Directors and Supervisory Conference BSA sessions. Participants of BSA training sessions receive their certificates on-site at the conference during the in-person NAFCU conference.

The NAFCU Online Training Center offers certificates for participation in live and on-demand webcasts. The Online training center also awards certificates for completion of the Board of Directors Online Training Course. Participants in online training sessions take a module assessment that tests their comprehension of the course. They can then print or save their Certificates of Completion, and they can also request multiple certificates by submitting their requests through the NAFCU online form.

Alternatively, you can obtain a BSA Certificate through the BSA/AML Certification Training Program. The program consists of seven sessions over four days. Participants can attend the live sessions or use digital downloads or equivalent CDs for the lessons they cannot attend. Training sessions include style guides and checklists. Participants also take brief assessment quizzes at the conclusion of each of the first six training sessions. Those who wish to earn a prestigious BSA/AML Certificate take a final test on completion of the seventh training session.
