als
Edcomm Banker’s Academy has recently launched its Credit Union Unfair and Deceptiv
e Acts or Practices (UDAP) training program for individuals.
New York, NY, December 07, 2010 -- Edcomm Banker’s Academy has recently launched i
ts Credit Union Unfair and Deceptive Acts or Practices (UDAP) training program f
or individuals looking to begin or advance their career in the financial service
s industry. The same great program that has already been used by thousands of cr
edit unions, Focus on Unfair and Deceptive Acts or Practices for Credit Unions p
rovides individuals the knowledge, skills and certification needed to protect th
eir customers from unfair and deceptive practices.
In September 2004, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) issued an
advisory letter regarding UDAP to alert financial institutions to concerns rega
rding certain practices in marketing and account management of credit cards. The
se practices entail unfair or deceptive acts or practices in advertising and sol
icitation, and can expose financial institutions to compliance and reputation ri
sks.
Focus on Unfair and Deceptive Acts or Practices for Credit Unions, from Edcomm B
anker’s Academy, is a comprehensive training program that teaches individuals abou
t the importance of UDAP and how it protects consumers against unfair and decept
ive practices. Participants will learn about the practices that the credit union
should avoid when soliciting or advertising to ensure fair marketing to consume
rs, as well as how to identify a possible UDAP violation and what action to take
to report it. Upon completion of Focus on Unfair and Deceptive Acts or Practice
s for Credit Unions, participants will receive a Banker s Academy Compliance Cer
tification (BACCUC) to help advance their career in today s financial services i
ndustry.
