    online practice area

    Building our skills from the previous course Online banking basics practice area, we are going to practise more advanced online banking tasks for desktop and laptop computers. In this course, we focus on transferring funds, paying bills using Bill Payment (BPAY for short), and controlling how much money can be withdrawn from your accounts at a time.

    Our Squirrel Bank practice areas give you an opportunity to perfect these more advanced skills in a safe environment and, if you make a mistake, it doesn't matter as you can always have another go!
