Have you ever wanted to start learning underwriting skills that will open future job opportunities? This course goes over one of the most important steps in the underwriting process which is running, reading, and interpreting Desktop Underwriter and Loan Product Advisor findings.

This is the course you need to start closing loans!

This course teaches you how to pre-underwrite a loan before it’s reviewed by the underwriter. If you are a loan processor, loan originator, or underwriter, you will use this important skill on every single loan you do. There’s no way around this! DU and LP findings will need to be on every loan file that’s completed by the lender to be compliant and to be able to sell the loan in the future. The truth is, underwriters can’t approve a loan unless they get an approve/eligible or accept/eligible status from DU or LP (some banks or lenders do manual underwrites but they are very few of them and is not the normal way you will get loans approved).

You can’t easily find content on this subject online because it’s information that’s taught to underwriters when they are being trained to underwrite loans!

What will I learn in this course?

  • You’ll learn what DU and LP are and how they affect the entire loan process.
  • You’ll become much more knowledgeable when it comes to reading and analyzing DU and LP findings.
  • You’ll learn to think like an underwriter by better interpreting the messages and the numbers that come back when you run the loan through Desktop Underwriter and Loan Product Advisor.
  • You’ll be able to save more loans and close more loans.
  • Also, you’ll become more confident when speaking to an underwriter about specific conditions.
  • Finally, you’ll be better prepared for future job opportunities that can come up.

What’s included in this course?

  • 4 real DU and LP examples explained in detail by the instructor.
  • Specialized knowledge you won’t find commonly online
  • Lifetime access to the course
  • Access to the course instructor in case you have any questions
  • Course certificate upon 100% completion
  • 30 day money back guarantee


This is a more specialized course that does require some basic mortgage knowledge so I recommend you take either of these courses on Udemy before starting this course so that you understand what is being explained:

“Become a Mortgage Loan Processor”

“Start a Profitable Career as a Mortgage Loan Originator”

“Conditional Loan Approval Mortgage Training”

Who will benefit the most from this course?

  • Loan processors that want to prepare to do their best and get hired for higher paying positions.
  • Loan Originators that want to close more loans by pre-underwriting loans before hand and provide DU or LP findings to realtors with the pre-qualification letter.
  • Anyone who wants to start a career in underwriting.
  • Mortgage business owners that want to increase their turn over ratio and close more loans.
  • Realtors who want to understand if a potential buyer has a high probability of closing on the loan.

A course diploma will be available to you when all sections have been completed at 100% which you can save or print. For instructions on downloading your course diploma you can go to Udemy support.
