How to earn the CCUB designation

To become a Certified Credit Union Board Member, you may choose from two methods of training:

CUNA Credit Union Board Certification School
Board members who prefer the traditional setting will opt for these week-long training sessions. It includes knowledge and discussion sessions, culminating in five (5) certification exams.

CUNA Certified Credit Union Board Member eSchool (recorded)
For board members who prefer to learn on their own, the recorded eSchool allows you to take the sessions at your own pace.
