CUIC® Employee Accreditations and Designations

Our highly-respected Credit Union Institute of Canada (CUIC) programs have been developed in partnership with Dalhousie University and credit union experts. Credit unions across the country recognize the rigour of CUIC courses and programs, and many have incorporated them into position requirements.
