Help Your Consumer by Knowing More About Credit

Course Summary:
This course will improve the licensee’s knowledge of the credit reporting system; thus making them more competent to assist the consumer that has credit issues.

The Agent will learn about these important credit reporting issues plus much more:

  • Errors on credit reports
  • Identity theft
  • Merged credit files
  • Characteristics of a High FICO Achiever
  • Why credit is so important to the banking system

The course, designed specifically to understand the practical side of credit reporting, delivers clear, accurate and actionable information that empowers the agent to properly advise the consumer in their quest for successful homeownership.
