Build an understanding of consumer credit, from application to documentation
What is Consumer Lending: U.S. Edition?
Consumer Lending: U.S. Edition is a comprehensive course that teaches both customer-facing staff and underwriters a systematic approach for evaluating requests for secured, unsecured, and home equity loans.
Participants learn how to determine whether a request is within policy and reasonable, evaluate the borrower’s income, use personal tax returns to verify income from nonsalary sources, and structure sound, properly documented loans that include the appropriate security.
Consumer Lending Regulations is also available to participants enrolled in Consumer Lending: U.S. Edition at no additional charge. This optional, two-module add-on provides an overview of the legislation that impacts the U.S. consumer lending process. (Note that Consumer Lending Regulations is designed to supplement, not replace, formal compliance training.)
