The fourth year of the Michigan guided financial counseling training and certification program has started in June with 30 participants from 16 credit unions. This will add more certified credit union financial counselors in Michigan equipped to help consumers on the path to financial stability.
This popular training program has been attended by 239 Michigan participants in the past three years and is used in a variety of ways to help members build a strong financial future. Using CUNA’s Financial Counseling Certification Program, participants completing the course will become Certified Credit Union Financial Counselors with the skills and knowledge to help guide members in personal money management principals. Funding from the Michigan CU Foundation is again bringing the NCUF’s REAL Solutions enhancements to Michigan; with live group sessions to provide hands-on training and bi-weekly group conference calls to supplement the modules.
