The CUNA Volunteer Certification School is designed for credit union volunteers wishing to sharpen their credit union acumen and take their duties to the next level. Over the course of this week-long, comprehensive volunteer certification program, credit union volunteers will gain the knowledge needed to perform their volunteer duties with confidence and expertise.

CUNA Volunteer Certification School curriculum is comprised of lectures and discussion sessions, culminating in five certification exams on the following topics:

  • Governance
  • Safety & Soundness
  • CEO Oversight
  • Strategic Planning
  • Board Operations & Development

“We are always impressed by volunteers’ dedication to their local credit unions and their interest in how they can contribute to success,” said Kevin Smith, CUNA Director of Volunteer Education. “At the CUNA Volunteer Certification School board members dive into complex credit union issues and work through them in simplified and practical ways.  The school also provides credit union board members excellent networking opportunities and the opportunity to reach a new tier of volunteer skill and excellence.”

For board members seeking to earn their Certified Credit Union Volunteer (CCUV) designation who are unable to attend the live school in September, the certification program is also offered as a self-study option through the Volunteer Certification Program (VCP).

Upon successful completion of the CUNA Volunteer Certification School or the self-study Volunteer Certification Program, volunteers will earn their Certified Credit Union Volunteer (CCUV) designation and CUNA Board Financial Literacy Certificate.
