Certificate Sessions Program Highlights

Financial Statement Analysis Highlights

NACM recently hosted a weeklong certificate session at its headquarters in Columbia, MD. Led by long-time NACM instructor and former NACM Chairman Jim McIntyre, CCE, the session, Financial Statement Analysis, focused on a number of skills necessary to succeed in the world of credit management that were a bit more advanced than those discussed in the first course in NACM's certificate series, Business Credit Principles, also taught by McIntyre.

Over the course of the week, McIntyre discussed the elements of accounting that affect credit professionals, including standard accounting processes, the different legal forms of business and the differences between them. McIntyre also led attendees through a document-by-document analysis of financial statements like the income statement, the balance sheet and the statement of cash flows. The mathematical analysis of the figures listed on financial statements was also a key component of the curriculum.

Here’s what some of the past attendees had to say...

“I could never have asked for a better experience, both in the knowledge gained through Jim (an A+ instructor) and by the hospitality and concern shown to us by everyone at NACM. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to attend the training and our every need was met.”

“This class was truly a rewarding experience. I feel I walked away with a ton of new knowledge that will not only serve my immediate work needs but will be an important part of my future development.”

Financial Statement Analysis 2: Credit and Risk Assessment

NACM recently held its Financial Statement Analysis 2 certificate session at its headquarters in Columbia, MD. Led by George Schnupp, CCE, the class offered students a more advanced look at credit risk assessment than its companion course, Financial Statement Analysis I.

This intermediate financial analysis program has been designed for credit analysts and managers seeking comprehensive understanding of what’s behind the numbers in financial reports. It is designed to improve the credit professional’s ability to analyze and interpret financial statements leading to quality credit risk assessment. The program gives equal weight to the process of financial reporting, the analysis and interpretation of financial statements and the steps required to write a quality credit line recommendation.

This program satisfies the intermediate course requirement for the Credit Business Fellow (CBF) designation. It is also an excellent preparatory class for the Certified Credit Executive (CCE) designation exam.

Here’s what some of the past attendees had to say...

“It was a very pleasurable and very useful experience. The organization of the event was great, and George was a very inspiring and motivating teacher.”

“I was so pleased with the class. George was wonderful… I would totally recommend this class to all credit people and controllers.”
