FiCEP includes 10 training sessions (nine webinars and one in-person session). It is strongly preferred that you attend the webinars live to participate in discussion; however, they will also be available as a recording.
The in-person session provides hands-on training, networking, and the sharing of best practices. Special training and coaching will help you develop a detailed vision and plan for financial counseling at your credit union.
The in-person session also includes a proctored exam which is required to receive the Certified Credit Union Financial Counselor (CCUFC) designation.
On average, students should expect to spend approximately 30 minutes studying each chapter, 60 minutes participating in each webinar, and additional time as needed to review the materials before the exam.

Once the registration deadline of April 21, 2023 has passed, refunds for the program cannot be issued. Refunds cannot be issued for students that leave the credit union during the FiCEP period. Substitutions can be made with another student from your credit union before April 21, 2023, however The League must be notified to make these changes.
