Consumer Lending Certification (CCBCL)
Consumer lending presents a unique set of challenges by combining credit risk process with regulatory process. This program addresses the consumer lending decision and making sense of each step by covering the application process, financial statement analysis, credit analysis, loan structure, compliance, documentation procedures and closing.
Commercial Lending Certification (CCLO)
Loans are the most significant risk in most bank portfolios. This program assists in developing the necessary credit skills to maintain and manage a commercial credit portfolio as well as the analytical processes needed to reach a conclusion about the borrower's repayment ability.
Credit Analyst Certification (CCBCA)
The role of a credit analyst has evolved into a critical function in today's community banks. This program focuses on the necessary financial analysis skills needed by today's credit analysts, and addresses the additional expertise vital to a community bank's overall lending success.
