Please submit your Nomination Forms and Participant’s Profile as soon as possible because we have been advised by the RBAP that the training can accommodate up to 90 participants only. The Goal of this training is to accommodate more Rural Banks rather than just a few Rural Banks, therefore, participants are limited to three (3) per Rural Bank. Should a Rural Bank have more than 3 participants, they will be placed on a wait list and will be accommodated only when there are slots remaining from the maximum number of 90 participants. Participation slots will be allotted on a first-come, first-served basis.

We look forward to your Bank’s participation in this very important training.
