Compliance Training

Compliance has always been an integral part of Credit Union business. However, the Credit Union Act, 2012 sets out new detailed compliance requirements that Credit Unions must adhere to.


We can provide the Board and Senior Management of a Credit Union with the following compliance training:

  • An overview of the new statutory compliance requirements detailed in the Credit Union Act, 2012, including a review of the ‘Annual Compliance Statement’ to be filed.
  • A detailed review of the new role of ‘Compliance Officer’ as outlined in the new Act.
  • Identification of key areas of compliance risk within the Credit Union movement
  • The inter relationship between Internal Audit, Risk Management Officer and Compliance Officer
  • Embedding a Compliance and Risk Management culture within a Credit Union environment
  • An overview of the key pieces of legislation a Credit Union must comply with during the course of its business.

The above list is by no means exhaustive. However, it does highlight the importance of compliance within the Credit Union sector.

General Training

We specialise in training for operational efficiency across IT and management skills and we have delivered programmes for Credit Unions covering topics including:

  • Report Writing

…and a broad range of IT courses from end-users in MS Office and Social Media to Database Querying for IT staff.

Fitness & Probity Training

The Credit Union Act of 2012 outlines a series of statutory requirements with regards to mandatory volunteer training. With Professional.ie, we have designed numerous user-friendly courses that will assist Credit Unions in complying with their statutory Fitness & Probity requirements.

We are more than happy to provide your Credit Union with a free assessment of its training obligations under the new Credit Union Act.


Through our partners, Professional Training, we can offer a complete training service. Obviously, Management and the Board of a Credit Union may have individual topics that may require our specific attention. A preliminary meeting with all concerned parties would be a necessary exercise before any training could commence.
