In addition, they will learn how to slow down or stop a foreclosure and how to end harassing phone calls from debt collectors.
This course is part of a growing catalog of more than 300 instructor-facilitated online
classes. Students have the flexibility to study at their own pace, combined with structure
and support. Plus, the classroom is accessible 24/7 from anywhere with an Internet
