ABCUL Academy reaches 400 users
31 Aug 16
ABCUL’s new training suite, the ABCUL Academy, has already attracted over 400 users.
Directors, staff and volunteers from credit unions of all types and all sizes across Britain have been logging in to take advantage of the ABCUL Academy’s modules and training pathways
The ABCUL Academy features the world's top-rated learning management system for the financial services sector, and it hosts a wide variety of training content in the form of videos, eLearning and reference materials.
The different elements can either be accessed independently as single modules, or grouped together to form a pathway - dependent on the time commitments and requirements of each individual.
The ABCUL Academy’s resources not only enable credit union boards, staff and volunteers to develop and improve their skills and knowledge, but the ABCUL Academy’s learning management system means they can easily demonstrate key personnel’s training record to members and regulators.
Access to the ABCUL Academy is an exclusive benefit of ABCUL membership, and costs just £55 per individual user per year.
Once signed up for the ABCUL Academy, all of its courses are covered by the annual fee – including a new course on compliance with financial promotions regulations.
ABCUL Head of Member Services Rosanna Donovan said: “The ABCUL Academy has had a great response so far, and we’re delighted to be adding new courses for our subscribers to help them update and expand their knowledge.
“The new financial promotions course is a great example of this. Although we might think of a promotion as being a written communication, it’s actually far broader than that, particularly with the significant increase in the use of social media. So this is a really important module to help credit unions ensure they’re compliant with all the relevant regulations.”
Any credit union in Britain can access the ABCUL Academy when they join the Association. For more information or to set up a special online preview session to see what the ABCUL Academy can offer, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
