Mortgage underwriting course

17 & 18 November 2020

In recent years the recognised career path to mortgage underwriter has changed substantially, partly due to the changing nature of mortgage advice. This new virtual course is delivered over two-days and has been designed to equip underwriters with the knowledge required to carry out their role effectively. 


  • Develop the judgment needed to make sound lending decisions, manage risk and identity fraud.
  • Understand and assess customers’ needs and circumstances.
  • Know how to assess and mitigate the risk features of a given set of circumstances.
  • Understand the role of credit reference agency reports and to be able to interpret them.
  • Know how to identify unusual application attributes that may lead to mortgage fraud

The course will be delivered using the Zoom virtual platform and will be interactive with several group discussions and case studies for attendees to consider, discuss and apply the knowledge and skills gained from the course.

Trainee underwriters, mortgage advisers that wish to broaden their skillset and those employed in a product development or risk capacity.
