Equalizations (13th Month Throughput Adjustments) Basics

This half day course is intended for people who want to understand what an equalization (13th month throughput adjustment) is, why we do them, and what information is contained within them.  It is ideal for those individuals looking to gain an understanding of the steps required to approve and/or code out an equalization.  An equalization will be done in class to demonstrate all of the components that make up an equalization and where the data comes from.  The course may not be in depth enough for individuals who will be required to do the equalizations for their organization.
