ABL Monitoring Guide is designed to teach account officers and other credit professionals the meaning of the analysis contained in a field examination and typical back office reports

Based on feedback from students in the Intermediate ABL Auditing class, this class was designed to convert the course into a less technical product for account officers, while adding an emphasis on the reports that can be used to monitor credit.
ABL Monitoring Guide uses multimedia presentation, class instruction and case studies to convey the importance of field examination information and recommendations.
Students are taught to look at the numbers and analyze trends.  The focus is:

  1. Analysis of numbers

  2. Professional Judgment and planning

  3. Risk analysis of when to respond to results

  4. Danger signs and possible responses

  5. Reporting and office Monitoring

Benefits of This Course
We believe that borrowers are smarter than ever and the possibility of willful misconduct increases with adverse conditions.  These factors make a well trained staff a priority.  Students learn the professional judgment skills and testing techniques to help safeguard assets and enhance a standard workpaper format.  Computers can enhance appearance, speed analytical time and help to test conditions, but a trained mind is needed to spot adverse trends and dig deeper when needed.  ABL Monitoring Guide provides the skills and techniques to enhance account officer performance.  Combined, these skills can reduce asset exposure, help to prevent booking poor quality credits and reduce write-offs.

Course Requirements
This is an intermediate level course.  Students should have at some basic knowledge of practical ABL terms and procedures associated with a borrowing base.  Besides a willingness to learn, the course demands attention to detail and a personal goal of striving to do the best job possible.
