MADISON, Wis. (1/5/12)--Forty-six credit union volunteers completed five days of lectures, overviews and testing to earn their Certified Credit Union Volunteer (CCUV) designation and the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Board Financial Literacy Certificate, CUNA announced Tuesday.
The CUNA Volunteer Certification School was created to provide credit union volunteers with practical education in all areas of credit union operations through live lectures, discussions and testing. The program creates a simplified approach to complex subjects and gets credit union volunteers up to speed on the information they need to know to serve their credit unions most effectively.
The CCUV designation symbolizes a thorough understanding of all areas and operations of the credit union. It can be earned by graduating from the CUNA Volunteer Certification School or completing the CUNA Volunteer Certification Program, a self-study education tool that features online learning modules.
In 2012, volunteers interested in obtaining their CCUV designation, can choose between the traditional classroom setting at the CUNA Volunteer Certification School, or a variety of self-study training options.
The 2012 CUNA Volunteer Certification School will be held Sept. 23-28 in Long Beach, Calif.
