Financial Educator Continuing Education Unit

Continuing Education


Description

Teaching financial literacy provides educators an opportunity to make a tremendous difference in the lives of people seeking positive change. The key to having great credit, becoming a homeowner, saving for retirement, avoiding default on federal student loans, recovering from identity theft, or handling so many other financial issues is knowledge. Financial educators build a foundation on which people change their lives.

This is a continuing education course. Students who successfully complete this course will receive 16 credit hours of continuing education credit. This course is not instructor-led and does not award a certification upon completion. Students interested in an instructor-led experience and certification should explore our certification programs.
