A Seamless Shift to Virtual Learning


When COVID-19 caused the world to shut down and pushed all nonessential businesses into an unfamiliar virtual space, Global Financial Training Program’s lending services didn’t skip a beat.


“Global Financial has always been centered around a flexible, work-from-anywhere business model. If you have a laptop and a cell phone, you can perform your job at home or from any location you choose – even if you travel, the business can go with you. It’s honestly one of the company’s greatest values,” noted Erica Sarway, the company’s vice president of sales and marketing.

A national company that secures financing for businesses and real-estate investors who have been turned down by banks, Global Financial Training Program calls upon a network of lenders who offer more than 30 types of funding, ranging from accounts-receivable financing to unsecured lines of credit. The company’s training program, which grooms


graduates to perform these tasks with extensive knowledge in loans, seamlessly shifted to a remote learning model during the pandemic.


“The crux of our training program is to put people into business securing loans for those who need them. We connect our trainees with the resources to access loans for people and companies who cannot obtain them. Throughout the COVID-19 shutdown, we were able to easily continue learning virtually on a Zoom platform. Our students never missed a moment,” Sarway said.


Providing attendees with an in-depth, four-day course hosted from its New York headquarters, Global Financial Training Program continued to afford participants more than three decades of experience in the loan-brokerage business, including all aspects of owning and running a finance company. Graduates receive 1,000 leads and are given one-on-one mentoring throughout the span of their careers.


“It’s still the same all-inclusive package. We set our graduates up with leads, websites and social-media setup along with all the marketing strategies needed to market aggressively.

These are all the tools needed to be successful in this industry. And for the time being, participants do not need to travel to New York City for in-person classes. They can now participate in the course from the comfort of their own home,” Sarway said.


Upon completion of the program, students are poised to deal directly with lenders, making their business competitively priced. And, according to Sarway, given the world’s current economic climate, the worth of that ability will only continue to grow in the future.


Sarway concluded: “I honestly believe we’re only going to continue to see an uptick in this segment of the industry. Small business has been so negatively impacted by the coronavirus, they need our services now more than ever. Participants in the Global Financial Training Program leave our course in a great position. They are able to launch a business with little overhead, offering a service that is currently in great demand.”
