With the Bedrock Community Credit Union simulated training environment, CU*BASE users can practice using the software without the worry of affecting real member data. Bedrock is set up just like a real credit union, but without links to outside vendors. This shared training resource is available to all online credit unions free of charge. Users can add members, modify accounts, and conduct transactions. Configurations are generic, using settings typical to most online clients, and access is limited to basic member service, lending, and accounting functions.

Whether introducing new employees to CU*BASE or helping existing employees practice new skills, the Bedrock Community Credit Union training environment is perfect for keeping CU*BASE users up to speed on the tools they’ll use every day to serve their members. To request credentials to access Bedrock, contact the CU*Answers Client Services & Education team at education@cuanswers.com.
