Course Description

The Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act of 2008 (SAFE Act) requires that state licensed mortgage loan originators (MLO’s) complete continuing education at an NMLS approved school every year. The 8 Hour SAFE Comprehensive Mortgage Loan Originator Continuing Education Course for 2016 at Larson Educational Services meets this requirement.

At the conclusion of this 8 hour course, students will be armed with the knowledge to legally, safely and efficiently serve the needs of today’s borrowers and lenders in real estate financing transactions.

This course is designed to teach you the updates to Federal Laws, including provisions of the Bank Secrecy Act related to detection and prevention of money laundering, requirements for delivery of the Integrated Disclosures, and general requirements for the Closing Disclosure, including revisions and corrections. We'll also explain how the CFPB supervises and examines financial service providers, and how to recognize types of mortgage fraud schemes and crimes. This course material is current with all laws and rules.
