Coleman’s Certified SBA Express Loan Training
Introducing the SBA Express Training Program: Complete a 4-week online video program and become an SBA Express expert. Your staff can complete on their own schedules — plus receive professional certification.

Recent SOP rewrites and the new SBA One loan platform create challenges for SBA Express lending origination and closing staff.

Former SBA Little Rock Loan Servicing Center Deputy Director Lance Sexton will train your staff to recognize all traps and how to quickly and correctly approve and close SBA Express loans.

Coleman’s four week online video series will give your staff the confidence and recognition as SBA Express loan experts.

SBA Express is an important loan product for successful SBA lenders to build your loan portfolio, meet customer access to capital needs and, very importantly, diversify your loan portfolio and lowering your PARRiS score.

This critical training anticipates future regulatory and processing changes for the SBA Express lending program.

The result: Your staff will be able to confidently approve and close SBA Express loans giving you a competitive advantage in the marketplace, meeting your customer’s lending requirement, and eliminating mistakes that cause embarrassing and costly SBA repairs and guaranty denials.

How to get certified? The online training consists of approximately one hour of video divided into four or five segments. Reading assignments, quizzes, and homework assignments complete the learning experience. BONUS! Every Thursday at 1 p.m. Eastern we host an office hour where you can get SBA-related question answered by your instructors.

Best of all, this training is only $795 per participant (multiple registrations from the same organization each receive an additional $100 discount).

Your faculty trainers bring a wealth of inside SBA Lending perspective:

Thanks for the info, much appreciated. Thank you again for a great course. I must admit my initial scepticism of any online class. Your format and delivery was dead on! I liked the video modules, reading assignments, and the office hours really tied things together. Thanks again! — Ben Kirker

Thank you for the Class, I thoroughly enjoyed and have taken a lot away. Your course will make me a better SBA liquidator which will effectively save the Bank of North Carolina money, time, and energy in liquidating their SBA credits. Thank You! — Bill Kerns, Vice President, Special Assets, Bank of North Carolina

Coleman’s SBA 7(a) Loan Underwriter course was a great investment! Bob’s thorough presentation of SBA’s requirements for underwriting and processing 7(a) loan applications, together with the real life case studies, increased my confidence that I can do SBA 7(a) lending right! It was a very beneficial ten weeks!
