The Curriculum
The 2024 Mortgage Lending School addresses the financial industry's most immediate and relevant training needs. This mini-institute provides real-estate lending professionals with a solid foundation of knowledge of real estate underwriting and compliance requirements, including exercises in underwriting. buying and selling mortgages in the secondary markets, construction lending, and today’s regulatory requirements. This school provides a practical, hands-on curriculum designed for learning by doing and for easy application at the bank, along with a small class size to increase networking opportunities and personalized instruction.

Who Should Attend
Bankers who have not been exposed to formal mortgage lending training and lenders who want to broaden their mortgage lending knowledge will benefit from the school. Attendees will be better prepared to serve effectively and profitably as mortgage loan officers. Students should have a solid foundation in the areas of accounting, financial statement analysis, and economics. This understanding can be evidenced by ABA courses, college courses, in-house programs, self-study, and/or experience. Students are expected to have had relevant banking experience prior to the school. This means a college degree, at least one year of experience, a high school diploma, and five years of banking experience.
