A Complete Loan Review Education

Lending & Credit Series

BAI's Lending and Credit Seminar Series can help you gain the skills, experience and expertise you need as a banking professional to successfully evaluate, manage, and monitor the loan quality and credit risk of your bank's consumer and commercial lending and credit card portfolios. The decision-making skills, specialized knowledge and valuable insights you gain from these sessions are vital for creating a strong and sustainable credit culture in your retail banking organization.

  • The BAI Credit Analysis Workshop offers a basic overview of the credit risk analysis process and each of its "moving parts" so you are prepared to fully participate in the BAI Loan Certificate Program.
  • The BAI Loan Certificate Program covers a full range of topics and concepts from cash flow analysis to collateral evaluation to loan loss reserves in two separate 3-day courses that work in sequence to help you build a complete understanding of the loan evaluation and management discipline and prepare for the real life challenges you encounter on the job.
  • Finally, the BAI Credit Risk Simulation Seminar uses computer-based models to help you learn how to manage the credit risk for a "virtual" bank and test the impact of your decisions on the bank's bottom line. Teams compete to achieve the most profitable results, changing key variables as needed for better outcomes.

By developing your skills as a highly trained and vigilant loan review professional, you are contributing to a strong and sustainable credit culture in your organization.
