Analytics software firm FICO (NYSE: FICO) today announced the agenda for its Credit Boot Camp at FICO® World 2016. This one-day event on April 26 offers an introduction to credit and risk 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, FICO’s consultancy group. Attendees will get a comprehensive introduction on how to use the FICO® Score. Sessions will also address data quality, the spectrum of scores available (from pooled scores to custom scores), and the strategic use of risk management technology. Attendees will also gain hands-on experience managing risk and lending decisions using tools in the FICO® Analytic Cloud.

“The FICO World Credit Boot Camp serves as a great way to start your FICO World experience,” said Wayne Huyard, executive vice president of sales, marketing and services at FICO. “Our feedback from last time showed it was valuable for people who have recently become responsible for credit management at a bank, a credit union, a retailer, a telecommunications provider or other type of firm. It’s also useful for professionals who want to tune up their knowledge before attending other FICO World sessions.”
