Register by Friday to become a certified financial counselor!

Registration is open through Friday, April 29 for the New York Credit Union Association’s Financial Counseling Certification Program — FiCEP — which offers member credit unions an enhanced version of CUNA’s FiCEP, combining the affordability and convenience of a self-study program and a hands-on approach and networking of an off-site CUNA school.

Certified credit union financial counselors are in a unique position to guide members to financial security, particularly as consumers seek reliable financial advice from budgeting to navigating financial hardships amid the pandemic.

Certified credit union financial counselors can:

  • help those experiencing financial difficulties;
  • demonstrate the credit union difference;
  • attract new members;
  • grow product and service revenue; and
  • reduce delinquencies and charge-offs.

Program features include:

  • eight-module curriculum presented in eight webinars;
  • one book and one proctored exam;
  • printed self-study materials;
  • instruction, review and opportunities for networking; and
  • certification after successful completion of exam.

FiCEP webinars will run between June and September. All webinars will be recorded and links will be provided for review. For more information about FiCEP or to register, visit the Association’s website.

The New York Credit Union Foundation also offers grants that may be used toward participant costs.
