Professional Development and Continuing Education

Contact us at for more information

Are you a professional or practitioner looking for opportunities to increase your own financial literacy or to gain a greater understanding of the issues affecting the financial wellness of your clients? The Credit Counselling Society’s professional development and continuing education programs were specifically designed to provide you with relevant, accessible information and resources you can bring directly into your practice.

We all know that financial stress can have a substantial impact on many aspects of life, yet people are largely hesitant to reach out for help when it comes to their finances due to feelings of shame, embarrassment, or even cultural factors. Our 2022 Consumer Debt Survey revealed that consumers in Canada feel more negative emotions than positive when thinking about reaching out for help with their finances. In fact, three-in-ten would feel more comfortable discussing their mental or physical health or personal relationships, than finances.

Understanding key elements affecting people and their finances gives you the ability to deliver a holistic approach to client solutions that includes personal financial wellness.

  • Would you like to improve your knowledge around personal finance?
  • Do you require continuing education credits or professional development hours (CEU’s or CCP’s) for your professional designation?
  • Would you like to better understand how to help your clients when they are struggling and overwhelmed financially?
  • Could you benefit from having financial resources and support available for your clients?

If so, then our Professional Development webinars and Certificate programs are the right fit for you. The Credit Counselling Society (CCS) Partnership & Education Specialists present live, online 60 to 90 minute professional development webinars for a variety of designations. Resources, Certificate of Completion, and Credit Counselling support for your clients are available upon completion of each session. Contact us at for more information.
