Based on a popular in-person training course, ICURN has developed a new virtual training program for financial cooperative supervisors. This intensive, case-study based training has been specifically developed for the needs of supervisors as of 2021 and will focus on issues that  came to the forefront during the pandemic, such as cyber-security, stress-testing and problem resolution of credit unions. 

At the end of the one-week session a written examination will be administered to help reinforce the training materials.
