The purpose of the Assistant Branch Management Training Program is to cultivate our own future leaders by merging a concrete knowledge base of banking, specifically First American Bank, with valued management essentials. Upon completion of the Assistant Branch Manager Training curriculum, trainees will attend an Assessment Panel session. During the session they will interact with members of Management and demonstrate their understanding of First American Bank policies, procedures and philosophies in addition to their leadership ability. The Assessment Panel will then provide feedback to the trainee regarding their progress, and placement within the branch network will be determined.
