NCUA has launched a small credit union “Learning Management Service.” The service provides users with access to training courses and information that is beneficial to credit union operations. Provided at no cost to credit unions, the service offers education in five categories: how the credit union system works; how credit unions are governed; credit union operations; products and services; and building community partnerships.
As a reminder, the New York Credit Union Association also has many resources available for small credit unions on its Small Credit Union Center page.
Here are the complete details from NCUA’s press release:
NCUA Launches Small Credit Union Learning Management Service
New Service, Available 24/7, Tailors Training to Credit Union Needs
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (May 8, 2017) – Credit union boards, staff and volunteers can connect more easily to essential training specific to their needs with a new portal provided by the National Credit Union Administration’s Office of Small Credit Union Initiatives.
The Learning Management Service, available here, gives users access to training courses as well as information beneficial to credit union operations. The service, provided at no cost to credit unions, offers education in five categories:
- How the credit union system works,
- How credit unions are governed,
- Credit union operations,
- Products and services, and
- Building community partnerships.
Credit unions can watch a demonstration of the portal during a Facebook Live event hosted at Georgetown University Alumni and Students Federal Credit Union today at 2:00 p.m. Eastern. The live stream will be broadcast on NCUA’s Facebook page.
The new Learning Management Service requires users to create an account to track their training progress. Users should view this brief tutorial video to learn more about creating an account and the service’s training categories.
NCUA plans to take user feedback and questions about the new Learning Management Service in an upcoming #NCUAChat. NCUA will announce more details in the near future.
The service is in its first phase of development. In time, new course materials will be added, so credit unions are encouraged to visit the new service often.
NCUA’s Office of Small Credit Union Initiatives fosters credit union development and the effective delivery of financial services for small credit unions, new credit unions, minority depository institutions and credit unions with a low-income designation.
