How much do you know about finances?

What is the last class you took on the topic? If it has been a while and you don't want to get out of the house, consider FDIC Money Smart Computer-Based Instruction. Get the financial training you wished you already had, in your own time. Money Smart provides education on topics like the basics of borrowing money wisely, using a spending plan to achieve financial goals, and using banking products effectively. The online series is a little like a board game, which makes it a little more fun :)

Note: We propose substituting the “home ownership” module with First Time Home Ownership training in the community (must be HUD-approved, see list here). The rationale is that the quality of the education — given contact with real people and local agencies — is likely to be much more useful to our members.
