What can the CUEP do for you?

In conjunction with Florida State College at Jacksonville, the Credit Union Education Program (CUEP) provides you with an opportunity to gain skills that meet the needs of your employer, but is designed with you in mind.

Credit Unions are earning a greater share of the financial institution market and that means greater employment opportunities for you! This program can effectively sharpen your skills and increase opportunities for better positions within credit unions. Both new and experienced employees benefit.

Now is a great time to earn a vocational certificate in Credit Union Services and Marketing by taking courses you can use on the job!

"I was brand new to the credit union industry when I took my first CUEP class. This program really set me on the path for success!  It is in large part because of the education I received through CUEP that I am the knowledgeable employee and loyal creduit union member that I am today." 


"The CUEP is amazing for the wealth of knowledge provided by the instructors, guest speakers, and classmates/peers. The Foundation and Structure course gave me an even greater pride for what we provide to our members. The knowledge gained has directly contributed to my success at VyStar Credit Union." 

Joseph Lukanus

"Throughout my CU career, I have not always worked for CUs that participated in CUEP. I started the program when I was 18 and just finished, so I may be the longest enrollee in the program. I have learned quite a bit from my classes and enjoyed meeting people from other CUs. I recommend CUEP to my coworkers, especially people who are to to CUs. However, we all know you are never too old to keep learning and growing."
