Virtual Commercial Lending School

Conference/Seminar/School Gail Queen

Commercial banking can be intimidating because of its complexity and the risk-oriented nature of the work.   This course is a clear and thorough introduction to the key concepts, terminology, and processes involved in credit and lending. It doesn’t assume much prior knowledge of the topic, so it’s ideal for those in their first year in the industry. Learners will walk away with a clear understanding of their job and how their specific role fits into the bank’s overall profitability goals.

Target Audience:  New credit analysts, lenders, and underwriters, as well as bankers who don’t do credit analysis but need a working knowledge of the process.  This may include statement spreaders, loan processors and closers, treasury management associates, administrative support for credit or lending officers, branch managers, and interns.
