If you want to be a bank teller, JCCC has a training program that could put you one step ahead of other applicants.
The bank teller training program, which requires 21 contact hours in classroom instruction, is offered through JCCC Continuing Education. Students learn and practice almost every skill they would need to work as a teller in a bank or credit union, said Tim Frenzel, program director of professional education.
The program’s topics include handling and processing money, professionalism and customer service. Students also are trained in the use of financial instruments such as cashier’s checks, traveler’s checks and money orders and learn about security procedures and pertinent government regulations.
The classes meet twice a week for three hours each time over a period of three weeks. The fee is $199.
Brandy Woltkamp, who teaches the program, is a former assistant vice president of training for the Bank of Blue Valley. During the final class session, she said, students get to meet and talk with representatives from area banks.
“Most financial institutions are hiring tellers fairly often,” Woltkamp said. One definitely would think that completing the training program “would give them a foot in the door,” she said.
Some of the teller positions pay as much as $11.50 an hour to start, Frenzel said.
“Banks are designed to move people up if they are interested,” he said.
The program is supported by the Bank of Blue Valley, Capitol Federal Savings, Community America Credit Union, Commerce Bank, First National Bank, Mainstreet Credit Union, UMB, Mazuma Credit Union, U.S. Bank and Metcalf Bank.For more information, e-mail Erica Miller or call 913-469-4315.
