NHBA Educational Programs

NHBA prides itself on its educational programs and opportunities for its members. We believe that our job as an association is to give our members access to the most up to date, innovative, and easily accessible information that helps in their daily work lives. We continue to look for new and creative ways to bring this educational information to our members and use the NHBA Committees to help recommend the hot topic and speakers.  As you will see, NHBA is busy all year providing half day, full day, and week-long programs to its members all across the state either independently or partnered with other New England State Associations. 


Please reach out to Sandy Tracy SVP/COO for more information.

The SBS Institute is uniquely designed to serve the banking industry by providing cyber education to better prepare students and their financial institution for cybersecurity threats and regulations. These banking specific, role-based certifications allow students to master the concepts and technologies required to perform essential cybersecurity functions. The SBS Institute certifications include real-world cybersecurity issues and establish solutions that make cybersecurity responsibilities more efficient and effective.

The SBS Institute certification program is designed around three learning paths: Executive, Manager, and Technical. Each path contains a list of applicable job titles, making it clear which courses are for you based on your job. Each learning path also includes one core certification and a variety of specialized certifications. A core certification is not a pre-requisite of a specialized certification, but is rather a natural starting point within the learning path.
