The Portland Chapter of the Risk Management Association offers educational opportunities for bankers throughout the year. Retail, commercial and private banks in our region turn to RMA Portland to provide critical training for finance professionals of all skill levels.

Working in partnership with our sponsors and volunteer members, we assess trends and top needs in the finance community and the Education Committee finalizes our course offerings each year. Throughout the selection process, we work to appeal to all individuals involved in the financial services industry.

Most classes are an all-day event held in downtown Portland. Periodically, shorter and more condensed Skill Builder classes are designed as two-hour training sessions. These brief seminars offer opportunities to network with your peers in the finance community, learn new techniques and trends or to refresh skills in specific areas.
