CMG MI Offers Local Course in Mortgage Lending Fundamentals

The one thing that has become constant within the financial services industry is change. In order to compete effectively within your market, it is important to maintain and grow your mortgage lending skill sets.

To successfully attract and retain your members’ mortgage business, you need staff who can demonstrate that your credit union is the better option—because they have the skills, the knowledge and the experience that produce a higher quality of customer service and faster turnaround times.

Prepare for success and start the fall housing market ahead of the competition by attending Mortgage Lending Fundamentals. Created by CUNA Mutual Group Mortgage Insurance Company (CMG MI), an industry leader in training, this two-day intensive session designed exclusively for credit unions can significantly enhance employees’ ability to originate, process and underwrite first mortgage loans to current secondary market standards.

This comprehensive introduction to mortgage lending is ideal for those who are new to mortgage lending or need a refresher course on the basics. The next class is being held in Beaverton, Ore., on Sept. 12-13, 2012—the perfect time to train ahead of the fall buying market. Mortgage Lending Fundamentals is the kind of “home schooling” that can help credit unions compete effectively and increase their market share.

  • Overview of the Mortgage Industry
  • Originating Mortgages
