Help families in tough times — Become a certified financial educator

Become a certified financial educator

Many families across Minnesota and nationally are finding themselves without a job or a reduction in pay or hours. This sudden loss of income is devastating for both families and communities. Many community partners are looking for ways to help provide financial education to help families navigate these tough times.

To help community professionals better teach others about personal financial management University of Minnesota Extension Center for Family Development created the Financial Educator Certificate program (FEC).

FEC is an engaging online course that is both a cohort experience and self-paced. Each participant learns the same concepts with a group of peers while completing lessons on their own timeline.

After completing FEC, professionals have the skills to teach families how to manage financial resources, build financial assets and improve their financial health and well-being

A new FEC cohort is coming soon. The nine-module course runs from September to April and costs $350. Registration for the course opens May 10.
