Edcomm’s Banker’s Academy Updates Courses to Include Changes to the Five Dollar Bill

New York, NY, November 09, 2007 --(PR.com)-- The Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) recently announced that the $5 bill will be updated. The new bill will be put into circulation in early 2008. As always, Edcomm's Banker's Academy is aware of the changes and is already in the process of updating the necessary courses.

The changes to the $5 bill include more colors and intricate design features, similar to the already released $10, $20 and $50 dollar bills. The $100 bill will be updated after the release of the $5 bill. In addition, the new design will be unveiled digitally, a testament to the government's commitment to enhance currency security through the use of technology.

It comes as no surprise that Edcomm's Banker's Academy is already in the process of updating their courses. Edcomm's Banker's Academy is always ahead of the curve and this is just another example. Edcomm's Banker's Academy uses visuals and descriptions of U.S. coins and currency in its courses so that students may recognize the difference between genuine and counterfeit items. A topic with a description and a visual of the new $5 bill will be ready for banks to roll out well before the new bill is put into circulation.
