Distance Learning

The Delaware Credit Union League is a primary resource for education for both credit union staff and volunteers in building the skills and knowledge required to keep credit unions competitive in the financial services industry. The creeping complexity of regulatory burden and the pressures of managing tight margins make it increasingly difficult for credit unions to ensure their staff and volunteers are well-informed. To help overcome these obstacles, the League includes webinars and teleconferences among its many distance learning opportunities.

Please contact Bernadette Hines with any questions at bernadette@dcul.org or 302-322-9341.

Credit Union Webinar Network

 Credit Union Webinar Network

Webinars, an important part of our overall training program, allow flexibility in training to meet the demands of a busy credit union; and the League has a long-term partnership with the Credit Union Webinar Network to deliver quality webinar training for credit union employees. As a result, affiliated credit unions in Delaware will be able to participate in discounted programs, and we will be able to offer discounted archived sessions to our small asset sized credit unions.

Eliminate the time and expense of travelling to training sessions by registering for a live webinar, presented in your own office. Or expand the value of the session by opting for the archived webinar – a recorded version available for six months after the live program date. As an added bonus, the archived option includes a FREE audio/visual CD ROM of the presentation, question and answer sessions, and program handouts. Use the archived webinar or this “off-the-shelf” training program for those that could not attend the live session or for future training.

The network uses a VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) platform that makes it easier than ever to participate in webinars! A computer with speakers is all that is necessary to listen and view a webinar – NO phone is required! Of course, those that don’t have computer speakers, or suffer with poor audio quality, can dial into audio with their phones. All handouts, supplements, and instructions for each webinar are emailed directly to the participant prior to the webinar.

More information on the program, including payment options.

Special Opportunity – for a limited time only!

The Delaware Credit Union League and the Credit Union Webinar Network are pleased to offer a complimentary, in-demand webinar for our valued webinar participants:

Disparate Impact Analysis:  What the U.S. Supreme Court’s Decision Means for Your Institution

Under a disparate impact analysis, an institution can be found liable for discrimination even if there was no intent to discriminate and even if steps were taken to prevent discrimination. This webinar will explain the importance of clearly stating a legitimate business purpose for all policies and procedures and provide ideas on how to defend against disparate impact claims.

This free webinar is available until December 31, 2015. For more information, including a link to the webinar, please click here.
