Director Training

The Credit Union Director Achievement (CUDA) Program is designed for professionals sitting on a credit union board, and offers the most current thinking about credit union corporate governance in three progressive levels.

The Credit Union Director Achievement (CUDA) program delivers the most current thinking about credit union corporate governance in Canada. This program is a road map to the knowledge and skills required to effectively govern co-operative financial businesses.

There are three levels in the CUDA Program: Foundations of Governance, Governance in Action, and Governance Application. Each level includes several modules and/or workshops providing in-depth learning. Since 2007, directors who complete the CUDA program are accredited by Dalhousie University as an Accredited Canadian Credit Union Director.


If you are a director of a credit union board, you can become an Accredited Canadian Credit Union Director (ACCUD) by first completing the CUDA Program, and then writing a qualifying exam. Note that the ACCUD accreditation has continuing education (CE) requirements which need to be met each year. CE credits are all CUDA Level C electives as well as Governance webinars.
