Canara Bank has been a fore runner in establishing its training system since 1950’s. It’s Apex Level Training College at Bangalore ably supported by 20 Regional Centres spread over the length and breadth of the country taking care of the knowledge, skill and attitudinal development of the employees. Being proactive to the requirements of an empowered workforce, the bank also focuses extensively on developing a “knowledge” workforce.
