Virtual Training

edu-virtual

For those who enjoy the flexibility of online training but value the interaction they get from in-person training, CU*Answers University offers virtual training. This type of training allows credit union staff to participate from the comfort of their own desk while still being able to interact with an instructor and course participants in real time. Following are details about CU*Answers virtual training options.

Customized Board Education

Held virtually, this individualized training program was designed to help participants harness the power of CU*BASE analytics tools to help their board see the bigger picture. Tailored to achieve the objectives of each individual credit union, the three training offerings that are part of this program show participants how to use CU*BASE tools to clearly and effectively present relevant information to their credit union board members during board planning sessions. Learn more about each offering below and by visiting the CU*Answers Store.

Webinars

Whether out of state or around the block, clients can attend CU*Answers University webinars for free, and without the cost of travel, making this a very cost-effective option. Webinars are a great choice for those who prefer a virtual learning environment that involves some level of interaction with the instructor and other participants. For a complete list of pre-scheduled webinars, see the training schedules beginning on page 25 and look for “webinar” in the Format column.

In addition to offering pre-scheduled webinars, CU*Answers offers webinars scheduled
throughout the year. To register for these webinars, please watch for an email invitation, which
will be sent to all those on the CU*Answers Client News email distribution list. To be added to
