Financial statements, cash flow, and tax return analysis are all important components of understanding your business borrower and helping your bank make a good credit decision. This two-day boot camp is designed to be hands-on and interactive through case study analysis and classroom discussions. New and experienced staff will benefit from this program.

Two sessions of the WBA Credit Analysis Boot Camp will be offered in 2021. This session will be held in Green Bay. An additional session will be hosted virtually on May 20-21. Each session will begin at 9:00 a.m. on day 1 and conclude at 3:00 p.m. on day 2.
