Course description

ICB Credit: 2.5 CRCM

This three-part webinar series provides with ACH essentials. Designed specifically for financial institutions, each session builds off the last.

Part 1 guides attendees through the life of an ACH transaction, including how ACH credits and debits are processed, and explains who the network participants are. It will also explore the involvement of third parties in the ACH Network, and the risks they present to your bank.

The program will also help attendees understand special codes called Standard Entry Class Codes (SECs) used for transactions in the ACH Network. This webinar will also discuss other laws and regulations that apply and will highlight critical processing requirements that can reduce the bank’s exposure to risk. It will also explore the most common violations for some SECs to help your bank avoid problems.

In addition to course materials, attendees will receive a free Quick Reference Guide for Standard Entry Class Codes.

Note: Have your 2017 NACHA Operating Rules and Guidelines book (aka, ACH Rules) handy! If you do not have an ACH Rules book, please contact your regional payments association, or order from www.nacha.org. The instructor will be providing page numbers for your reference throughout the program, so you might want a highlighter handy as well.
