Catholic Vantage Financial congratulates team members completing certified financial counseling training

Two team members of Catholic Vantage Financial (CVF) recently completed the Financial Counseling Certification Program (FiCEP) offered by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) to help members gain control of their financial future.

The newly certified credit union financial counselors are Sarah Gyetvay and Mallory Hudak. Both work at the Livonia branch, located at 36111 Five Mile Road. Gyetvay serves as branch manager, and Hudak is a member service representative. Their training was made possible through a grant CVF received from the Michigan Credit Union Foundation.

“We have a longstanding commitment to financial literary and well-being of our members,” said Emma Teller, CVF vice president of operations. “Too often people are deluged with financial information and ads that can be misleading — especially during this pandemic. We want members to know they can talk with people they trust and who have gone through extensive training to assist them no matter what their financial situation looks like.”

The training included a self-study program, study guides, access to counseling documents, test preparation, live group training sessions with experienced counselors and two proctored testing sessions.

“We have a passion for assisting our members that’s rooted in financial literacy,” said Gyetvay. “We are here to guide and educate people about how to build their credit scores after a financial crisis, develop good financial habits and improve their overall financial status.”
