NCUA Establishes New Small Credit Union Learning Service
The National Credit Unions Administration's Office of Small Credit Union Initiatives (OSCUI) launched a new training service for credit union boards, staff and volunteers. The Learning Management Service allows users access to training courses and additional supporting information and guides. This free service offers education in five categories:
- The credit union system,
- products and services, and
- community partnerships.
Users must create an account to track their training progress and print training certificates. A tutorial video is available to help individuals create their account.
User satisfaction is important to NCUA. There are plans for an upcoming #NCUAChat to answer any questions and refine the user experience. NCUA will release more details about the chat soon.
There are plans for additional course materials, so credit unions should visit the new site often. This is the first phase of the project and more courses will be added.
NCUA’s Office of Small Credit Union Initiatives focus on credit union development in small credit unions, new credit unions, minority depository institutions and credit unions with a low-income designation.
