Credit Cross-Training

Length: 1 hour

Looking for the most effective ways to build or rebuild credit? Whether you’re establishing credit for the first time, or rebuilding it after getting off course, it’s important to know how to use this financial tool responsibly. Treating your credit cards and loans like cash is a recipe for bruised credit. Dealing with credit is similar to other forms of spending―it requires a plan, and preparation, to stay in good shape. In this course, learn how to organize your current finances, plan for your application, understand credit reports, build credibility, research the best credit options for your unique situation, understand what creditors look for, and be a wise credit user.
