Summary

The Money Transmitter Trainee Examiner (MTTE) is an entry level position where the examiner trains on the basic Money Transmitter (MT) examination functions related to the operations and compliance programs of MT entities. Money transmittance is where a non-bank entity offers products and services such as money orders, wire transfers, drafts, prepaid access cards, online internet transfers, and mobile payment transfers, or e-wallet transactions. Money transmittance examinations measure and evaluate the performance level and risk inherent in money transmitter companies, including the transmitter’s ability to evaluate, identify, measure, monitor, and mitigate risks. The MTTE participates, along with other assigned financial examiners, in the examination and evaluation of assigned entities in order to satisfy regulatory responsibilities of the Office of the State Bank Commissioner (OSBC) and the federal government.
