If you earned your Certified Financial Counselor designation three or more years ago, you are encouraged to complete continuing education to keep your certification. CUNA no longer requires an exam to recertify, instead you can choose from the following two options available:

  • Option 1 -  register for CUNA’s eSchool ($995).
  • Option 2 – purchase the update book to read at your own pace and complete the online self-reporting form ($300) 


LCUL is committed to ensuring our Certified Financial Counselors have the opportunity to network, share best practices, role play, and create new implementation strategies through our newly created Financial Counselor’s Corner online platform, quarterly zoom chats, and a year end in person conference (details coming soon). We know these elements are vital to the continuing education of a certified counselor. Please note however, that LCUL’s additional opportunities alone will not meet CUNA’s recertification requirement. Recertification through CUNA can only be received through one of the CUNA programs listed above.
