Board 360 Content

Board 360 board-specific learning content is timely, relevant, and updated regularly. Whether presented as a course, a video, or a webinar, all Board 360 material is focused on board-required credit union topics, and specifically geared to the learning needs of credit union board members.

All learning content is developed in conjunction with credit union regulators and experts, so you can be confident that it is accurate, practical, and comprehensive. Board members can complete content individually, or as a group, to facilitate discussion on topics of concern to your credit union.

Courses and Assessments (Quizzes)

Board 360 courses are detailed, yet engaging, and cover topics ranging from financial literacy to Canadian credit union legislation.

The accompanying assessment (quiz) for each course tests what the board member has learned. Experienced directors can skip the course and simply challenge the assessment.

Board 360's course library consists of 30 online courses and associated quizzes, with new topics added regularly.

Board 360's self-assessments provide credit unions with the tools to determine their board members' knowledge and identify where additional training may be required. A board assessment also enables board members to provide feedback about their board's performance. Insightful reports identify the competencies each individual brings to your board, and pinpoint any gaps.

Directors indicate their knowledge of nine core competencies by selecting statements organized into four levels of difficulty. Credit unions can use directors’ responses to identify where training may be required.

Principles of Good Governance
Principle 1 - Role Responsibilities
Principle 2 - Risk Governance
Principle 3 - Strategy Planning
Principle 4 - Effective Team
Principle 5 - Accountability
Principle 6 - Co-operation
