UB HS Scholarship

Course Description

The Hawaii Banking Association and UH Community Colleges co-developed a new course to teach the essential job skills for entry-level Bank employees. As customers utilize more technology, the roles of bank employees are requiring broader knowledge of bank products while emphasizing excellent customer service. This unique and exciting new program has been validated by each of Hawaii’s major banks and credit unions.
