Credit Officer Courses

A Credit Officer processes applications for credit from potential borrowers. You might work for a bank, other financial institution or for a lending broker. A Credit Officer, or Credit Manager, collects financial information from customers and analyses their application. This might involve checking financial data and conducting risk assessments. You’ll make a recommendation on whether or not to approve an application and determine the amount a customer may borrow.

A Credit Officer should have a good head for numbers and a strong understanding of banking and financial systems. You’ll need to be good at financial analysis and be able to follow correct procedures. Customer service skills are important and you should be able to communicate with people from a range of backgrounds.
