Want to find out how your financial certification translates into positive action to help raise others’ financial capabilities? Here’s a case in point:
Recently a retired woman found herself wanting to give back to her community by bringing other adults financial lessons. She completed her financial coach certification program and her CFEI training to teach money management. However, getting started posed a challenge. She asked some contacts at the senior center, and one of them suggested the NFEC. Our woman found that this organization offered several ways to prepare instructors to effectively present financial education programming.
So she took one of the certification courses. After getting certified, she had the confidence to break out on her own effort to teach personal finance. Once she’d presented a couple of live events that showed good results, she realized she needed a recognizable brand. With the NFEC’s help, she developed a private brand that featured an attractive logo and trendy colors, which they used to label all her resources and handouts.
As her initiatives gathered steam, over time she expanded her program to incorporate more of the campaign choices to which NFEC graduates gain automatic access: live presentations, online learning platforms, blended and flipped classroom strategies, and webinar-based instruction.
