1. Overview

FDIC is soliciting participation for the first 2018 session of FDIC 101: An Introduction to Deposit Insurance, Bank Supervision, and Resolutions, on March 12 – 16, 2018.

FDIC 101 is designed to provide a high-level overview of the FDIC’s policies and operations in a format tailored for an international audience.

During the week-long class, senior FDIC experts will:

  1. Describe the FDIC’s bank supervision activities and authority.
  2. Explain how the FDIC manages the Deposit Insurance Fund.
  3. Describe how the FDIC resolves failed banks and its role in resolution planning for systemically important financial institutions.

FDIC 101 does not intend to teach international best practices in deposit insurance, bank supervision, or resolutions; the class will only present the FDIC’s approach to these issues. By the end of the class, participants should be able to combine what they learn with their own experience to determine which lessons may be most applicable to their organizations.

A separate solicitation will be sent in early 2018 for the second session, scheduled for November 5 – 9, 2018.

2. Audience

FDIC 101 is designed for senior to mid-level managers and rising leaders from deposit insurance organizations, central banks, bank supervisors, and other international government agencies otherwise involved in financial safety net regulation and policy making.

As a policy-oriented program, participants in a position to influence policy at their organization and with a strong understanding of their respective regulatory systems and crisis management framework would benefit most from this program.

Translation services will not be offered. Students should have a strong command of English to maximize their comprehension of the training event.
