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 clearly understand their job and how their specific role fits into the bank’s overall profitability goals. Hear from facilitator Keusal Learning's Founder and President, Andy Keusal

Andy Keusal, a commercial banking and credit expert, founded Keusal Learning in 2015 after having spent 18 years in commercial banking. Andy began his banking career as a Credit Analyst and spent most of his 18 years interviewing, hiring, and training people for commercial banking positions. By far, the most challenging period of his career was the first year because he entered the industry so unprepared to perform the job I was hired to do. Andy wrote the book Breaking Into Banking to help aspiring commercial bankers avoid the struggles he had in his first year, so they can hit the ground running once they are hired. Andy is the father of ten children, ages 3 to 30, the nine youngest of whom he is currently homeschooling.  Given his experience as a homeschooling father and a banking trainer (not to mention a BA in Psychology), Andy has learned how to help people through a learning curve in a fun and manageable way.
