This five-day online, interactive presentation is an advanced course that covers RD’s Section 502 direct loan program and provides invaluable insight into how this homeownership financing resource can be used in your communities. Learn how your organization can assist potential borrowers and work in partnership with RD staff in your state to deliver successful Section 502 loan packages. Through this course, designed for those experienced in using Section 502, participants will learn the regulations and practical applications of the loan program. Participants will develop a strong understanding of 502 direct underwriting and packaging standards, which will ensure that submitted loan dockets are complete and ready for processing.
This course and the online exam are two of the criteria required to becoming a 502 Direct Certified Loan Packager.
