For the third year, the Illinois Credit Union Foundation is bringing the REAL Solutions enhanced version of the Credit Union Financial Counseling Certification Program (FiCEP) to the credit unions of Illinois.
This is a unique partnership between the National Credit Union Foundation/REAL Solutions, Credit Union National Association’s Center for Professional Development (CUNA CPD), the Illinois Credit Union League and Illinois credit unions to train staff who are then able to give professional financial counseling and education to members and potential members throughout the state.
The Illinois program for 2013, which begins today, will see 57 new participants from 19 credit unions as well as representatives from CUNA Mutual Group take part. In the first two years of the Illinois program, more than 60 individuals from 30 credit unions “graduated” as Certified Credit Union Financial Counselors (CCUFC). Each year, a “class reunion” is held with the new crop of CCUFC’s, along with other individuals who have previously achieved this designation.
