About the Program

The RMA Commercial Lending School is delivering the training you need, when and where you need it. That means you can look forward to these offerings being held live online via the Zoom web conferencing platform. It’s the same great content, learning objectives, and expert instruction, but delivered to you in the comfort of your home or office. On classroom days, participants will join the web conference from their laptop or computer using a link exclusive to those in the School. Once joined, they’ll be greeted by the instructor and taken through the material, engage in exercises, receive coaching and feedback, interact with peers, and ask questions as needed-just like in a physical classroom
