CUNA offers personal finance courses for CU staff
MADISON, Wis. (7/17/08)--The first of a series of self-study personal finance courses to help credit union staff understand the basics of personal finance was recently added to the Credit Union National Association’s Web-based training service, CPDOnline. The online interactive courses--available in English and Spanish--are designed to help staff make more knowledgeable decisions about their own finances. Available topics include:
* Couples and Money. Learn the tools to help partners budget money and enhance their relationship. It teaches how to improve communication skills, set financial goals, and build a spending plan. Couples also evaluate their accounts, insurance, and loans to ensure everything is in order. * Used Car Buying. Offers strategies for finding and buying a quality used car. It helps users determine what they are looking for in a car, pre-buying research, calculating payments, dealer and seller negotiations, and using their credit unions.
More than 20 overall courses--including five additional staff personal finance courses-- will be added to the CPDOnline membership later this year. Upcoming personal finance topics will explore credit management, home buying, new car buying, checking accounts, and identity theft.
