MADISON, Wis. (04/18/2013) – CUNA released the results of a State of the Credit Union Training Industry Survey conducted late in 2012. This survey asked more than 100 credit union training professionals a series of questions regarding training budgets, challenges and methods.
The results provide insight into where credit union training is heading including forecasts of consistent or increasing training budgets with less than 10% of credit unions planning to cut back. In addition to budgets, credit unions reported to what extent they are exploring other areas of training and different delivery methods, such as mobile learning, and what barriers are standing in the way of technological advancement for credit unions.
In response to the survey results, CUNA has taken action to enhance its offerings for human resource and training professionals, including a Blended Learning Whitepaper from CUNA Councils, expanding the Take-Charge Ideas for Trainers webinar series, adding a course authoring tool for CUNA CPDOnline subscribers and developing in-depth topics for CUNA HR/TD Council Conference and CUNA Experience Learning Live!
Credit union professionals wishing to read the CUNA State of the Credit Union Training Industry Survey Results, should please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
