Description

Overview

The Northwest Office of Native American Programs is pleased to offer credit counseling training in western Washington. The two day credit counseling training session will take place November 7-8, 2017 in Port Angeles, WA.

This training will include tools, resources, and exercises to prepare all attendees in how to provide the basics of credit counseling.

Training

This training will prepare participants to offer credit counseling and education to inform tribal members how credit can affect their lives and aid them in achieving their financial objectives. Credit Counseling is important because it can help: improve credit; increase the chances of getting a mortgage; identify ways to reduce the interest rate on loans; in renting an apartment; and potentially reduce the security deposit amount. The training will cover the following areas:

Financial principles that include net worth, cash flow, identity theft and consumer protection laws

  • How to identify and modify ineffective money management behaviors including overcoming financial debt, budgeting debt, and bankruptcy
  • Developing successful strategies for achieving financial goals
  • Understanding loans and homeownership, including banking, lending, and mortgage ratios
  • How to support and counsel tribal members as they address financial challenges and opportunities
  • The impact credit has on individuals and families; the importance of reviewing credit reports annually; and, tips on how to establish credit.

Registration begins at 8 AM on Day 1. Training begins at 8:30 AM and ends at 4:30 PM each day.
