SAN JOSE, Calif.—October 9, 2014—FICO (NYSE:FICO), the predictive analytics and decision management software company, today announced the agenda for its first Credit Boot Camp at FICO World 2014. This one-day event on November 11 offers an introduction to credit decision management for those new to the field or looking for a refresher course.

Participants will have a choice of sessions presented by FICO experts, including consultants from Fair Isaac Advisors. Julia Wooding from FICO's Scores team will provide a comprehensive introduction on how to use the FICO® Score. Attendees can also benefit from sessions on the use of alternative credit data for scoring, fundamentals of originations, customer management and collections, and a review of the latest financial services regulations. At the end of the day, participants can test their knowledge in a "gamified" training exercise presented by BankersLab

"FICO World is the must-attend conference for senior executives," said Mike Gordon, executive vice president of sales, marketing and services at FICO. "Yet there's still abundant opportunity for those who've recently become responsible for analytics-powered credit management to learn the basics, as well as for old pros who want to tune up their knowledge before attending other FICO World sessions."
