National Credit Union Foundation opens registration for DE Trainings

The National Credit Union Foundation is offering its signature Credit Union Development Education (DE) Training in a virtual learning environment. Registration is now open for Spring 2021 DE Trainings with one beginning March 15 and the other beginning April 26.

Since 1982, the DE Program has inspired credit union professionals and advocates to leverage the unique business model of credit unions and serve our members and communities in new and better ways. While many trainings focus on the “what” and “how” of credit union service and operations, the DE Program focuses on exploring the “why.”

Attendees learn the credit union cooperative principles, member challenges and how to solve them with empathy. After graduating from DE Training, credit union professionals will bring back tremendous value to your organization through a passion for the movement and solutions to issues with innovative products and services.

Over four weeks, participants will engage in a mix of on-demand and live learning sessions. Live learning sessions will be held on Mondays and Tuesdays between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. CT for the duration of training.

March 15 – April 9, 2021 – Register Now! 

April 26 – May 21, 2021 – Register Now! 

The cost to attend DE Training is $2,000. Full payment is required to reserve your spot in the desired session. Contact Maggie Wolff for additional information at

  • Registration is limited to one person per organization per class with a maximum capacity of 48 U.S.-based participants per session.

All participants will need:

  • A reliable internet connection
  • Access to Zoom
  • A functioning webcam & microphone

Additional details including DE program eligibility and what to expect in a virtual learning environment can be found on the Foundation’s website.
