  • Activities to help students set financial goals, create budgets and understand the costs and benefits of credit.
  • Interactive tools to illustrate the importance of saving and the power of compounding.
  • Real-life scenarios that will help students understand risk and how insurance can protect them from catastrophic claims.

  • 6 Continuing Education Units.
