Lenders Online Credit Training

Credit Risk Ready for Recession.

The Coronavirus Pandemic has knocked the United States and world-wide economy into recession and, due to social distancing, disrupted the work environment and work flow of lenders and credit professionals throughout the country.

The challenges to the banking community are massive:

  • Assist borrowers to weather the recession by providing resources as well as, potentially, extended credit.
  • Assess credit worthiness as we work with borrower businesses that have been completely disrupted by shelter-in-place, supply chain failures and loss of customers.
  • Improve credit analysis skills of the less experienced lenders, analysts and underwriters who, in many cases, were in high school during the Great Recession and have started their careers in a flat interest rate environment.

Virtual training for you or your team

With travel restrictions and at-home workers, you may be searching for online training alternatives that are robust, rigorous, and effective. We are not shifting to online training, we have been doing it for years.

Take a look at this site or download our PDF about the online training. Then contact us to talk about distance training for your lending and credit professionals. They can start next Monday.

This intro module describes the program and how it works. It uses the same 'player' as the modules in the training.
