Training Overview

Underwriting in 2022. Get your Advanced Commercial Loan Underwriting Certification today!

As an experienced underwriter, when interest rates rise, you need to rethink how you evaluate commercial loans. You must determine repayment ability, which necessitates analyzing both the short-term status and long-term potential of borrowers. Sufficient positive cash flow to repay creditors and reward owners comes from solid financial results, sustainable operating performance, and a stable foundation.

To help you project borrowers’ financial performance and analyze the underlying assumptions, we are offering a three-session certification program. Packed with specific actionable information, these webinars will help you reduce your institution’s risk and increase financial rewards.
