MADISON, Wis. (5/18/09)--Fifteen credit union professionals were recertified for their financial counselor designation by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) during April. The Certified Credit Union Financial Counselor (CCUFC) designation requires recertification every three years to ensure knowledge in the area remains current, said CUNA. To be recertified, designees must accumulate 30 hours of financial counseling training within the three-year period and pass a recertification exam. This can be completed by attending CUNA's Certified Financial Counselor School: Advanced, or by completing the self-study Credit Union Financial Counseling Certification Program (FiCEP) Recertification Module. Among the individuals recertified are two staffers with CUNA's Center for Personal Finance: Susan Tiffany, director of personal finance information for adults, and Lin M. Standke, manager of youth programs. For a complete list of those recertified, use the link.
