Abrigo's Sageworks ALLL Software Training

CECL LIVE is a 5-week long virtual training course that will equip Abrigo users with the tools needed to develop a loss rate model using the Abrigo Sageworks ALLL solution. During the sessions, users will learn about the remaining life and discounted cash flow (DCF) methodologies and how to use these techniques to build their first CECL models in Sageworks. 

The course requires a commitment of at least 5 hours a week including attendance to a live webinar. Then you will work on applying the concepts in your environment by completing weekly assignments and ending each week with a knowledge check. All live sessions will be recorded and made available to attendees afterwards, along with the presentation slides.
