The certification program meets the requirements of the European Parliament and Council Directive on Mortgage Credit. The objective of the mandate is to ensure a minimum standard of competency and ethics among mortgage lenders, specifically applicable to the following roles:
- Bank professionals in the front, middle and back office engaged in residential mortgage lending (for example, product design, underwriting, administration and management, as well as selling)
- Mortgage brokers who propose, offer, and/or sell residential mortgages
- Managers of employees listed above
- Individuals aspiring to work in any position related to the Hungarian mortgage market

Beyond meeting regulatory requirements, the program is designed to elevate the consultative skills of lending professionals and help them become responsible advisers to their customers, in line with the objectives of Hungarian banks and the evolving expectations of the market.

The program delivers a modern learning experience by using advanced technology to personalize the learning and expedite the impact while minimizing the workload for those who already possess the required skills.

Gergely Fábián, Chief Executive Officer of BIB, noted, “We are delighted to work with Moody’s Analytics and to bring their educational framework and professional knowledge in mortgage lending to Hungary. The program aims to instill best practices in lending for mortgage lenders in the Hungarian Banking industry.”

Béla Öcsi, Chief Executive Officer of the ITCB, added, “The innovative Credit Coach framework from Moody’s Analytics brings an enhanced learning experience for all participants. We are pleased to be able to deliver substantial value to the local banking sector through the collaboration with BIB and Moody’s Analytics.”

“We are honored to collaborate with the BIB and ITCB to deliver a program that represents the highest standards in international credit practices, adapted to the unique context of the Hungarian banking industry,” added Ari Lehavi, Executive Director at Moody’s Analytics. “We look forward to supporting similar institutes across the region in their goal of addressing the certification requirements of the European Mortgage Credit Directive, as applicable in their local market.”
