Posted August 5, 2016
The 2016 CUNA Financial Counseling Certification Program (FiCEP) students have earned their CUCFC (Credit Union Certified Financial Counselor) designation! Mississippi has graduated 163 CUCFCs from 34 credit unions across the state.
The Enhanced FiCEP program (Credit Union Financial Counseling Certification Program) is a unique partnership between the National Credit Union Foundation's REAL Solutions program, CUNA's Center for Professional Development (CUNA CPD), credit union leagues and credit unions. The program is designed to train staff who are then able to give professional financial counseling and education to help members better prepare for their future and to assist when they are faced with financial difficulties.
