Solutions for Credit Unions
As credit unions strive to build market share in the commercial lending market, it is essential that their lenders have the skills and confidence necessary to interact with both their clients and prospects. At Edge, we support the commercial lending efforts of credit unions by recommending several of our courses from our Credit Skills Curriculum.
First, given the substantial number of small business lending transactions being pursued by credit unions, we recommend our Commercial Lending Fundamentals course for your lenders. Commercial Lending Fundamentals is designed to provide participants with the ability to gain credibility in the eyes of their customers by understanding their borrowing needs and being conversant with respect to their operations and financial statements. This course has been overwhelmingly well received by our clients over the years including the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association.
For credit underwriters and lenders who require a more in-depth set of credit skills, we recommend you consider our Financial Accounting for Bankers, Commercial Credit Analysis and Principles of Loan Structure courses. These three courses provide learners with the core skills necessary to make sound decisions when lending to companies of any size. Although any of the three courses in this series can be used effectively individually, they are also designed to work together to provide a comprehensive skill set for new hires or experienced employees.
