CRI To Offer Online Training
ATLANTA-Creditor Resources, Inc. (CRI) said it has been working with WebEx to deliver additional credit union training online. Interactive training programs, said CRI, act to improve employees' product knowledge, cross-selling techniques, communications skills, and more. The online WebEx presentations allow from one to 10 participants at a time, including the facilitator. CRI's online training via WebEx currently includes three modules for insurance training: Presenting Payment Protection, Identifying Payment Protection Needs, and Addressing Objections. CRI's trainers customize each module based on the credit union's membership profile, underwriting guidelines, and other factors. The training is most effective when the participant uses the web and simultaneously speaks on the telephone with a CRI trainer, the company said.
