CU System
Michigan league trains 85 new financial counselors
LANSING, Mich. (7/30/10)--Eighty-five credit union financial educators participated in a program July 15-16 that was offered by the Michigan Credit Union League. The program aimed to help the educators work toward a Certified Credit Union Financial Counselor status. The educators represented 34 credit unions. The training sessions took place at University of Michigan CU in Ann Arbor. Instruction was provided by Kathryn Greiner, director of credit at U of M CU; Beth Blanco, budget counselor at U of M CU; and REAL Solutions Field Coach Mark Lynch. A National Credit Union Foundation’s REAL Solutions program grant funded 20 of the training opportunities. The self-study program began in April and will end in October. It will be enhanced by live group support, networking and testing provided by the Michigan league. “This program will put more trained personal finance experts in the field to help Michigan’s credit union members and to strengthen our communities,” said David Adams, president/CEO of the Michigan league. Using CUNA’s Credit Union Financial Counseling Certification Program (FiCEP), participants who complete the program and tests will be designated as Certified Credit Union Financial Counselors. FiCEP includes two parts of four learning modules each. The modules are:
* Introduction to Financial Counseling; * Financial Counseling Essentials; * Special Issues in Financial Counseling; * Using Communication Skills During Financial Counseling; * Taxes, Insurance and Investments; * Controlling Living Expenses and Understanding Consumer Credit; * Matching Values to Money; and * Retirement and Special Issues.
