Please note: this course has been converted to a virtual format in response to concerns surrounding COVID-19.


Our introductory ABL workshop is designed to give you a full overview of the ABL industry. Instructors explore the sales process including understanding the borrower's business needs, determining the advance, financial analysis and due diligence, and working with the prospect through this process. If you have pieced together your learning on-the-job or are just starting out, this workshop will provide the systematic foundation you need to succeed.
This session of the course will also include a discussion of the current environment and the impact of COVID-19 on the industry

We recommend anyone early in their career take this course before moving onto the intermediate and advanced courses offered in operations, underwriting, account management, field exam, and business development.
