The skills required for construction lending are different from those utilized to underwrite Consumer and Commercial Loans. It requires an understanding of the technical part of construction such as reviewing plans and specifications, recognizing costs of construction, evaluating the land development processes and the vertical construction of a building; in addition to understanding how to underwrite the Owner-Occupant, the Builder and the Developer. Many problems can occur during construction that can leave lenders highly exposed unless they are underwritten properly. Therefore understanding the risks in this type of lending is paramount for bankers. This Construction Lending School is designed to provide fundamental and proven techniques to minimize these risks.

The intensive, one-week, Commercial Lending School received rave reviews from the class of 2011, which included 32 students from 19 states and 27 financial institutions. The school appeals to a wide range of students who need intensive and formal lending and credit training. Recent classes have included junior lenders new to banking, experienced bankers—from non-lending backgrounds—whose careers now focus on commercial lending, and officers and specialists from non-bank organizations who perform lending and credit-type activities. Case studies are used extensively, and active participation by the students is essential. The work will require study, documentation, analysis and decision making, often in small teams that will interact intensively with the instructors, both during the day and in the evening.
