This course on Florida-specific education fulfills 1 hour of annual continuing education for licensed MLOs in the state. A total of 8 hours must be completed each year before renewal is possible, which includes 3 hours of federal law, 2 hours of non-traditional mortgage lending, 2 hours of ethics (including fraud, consumer protection, and fair lending issues), and 1 hour of Florida-specific education. This is a stand-alone course and can be taken either on its own or in connection with other courses offered by AYPO to fulfill your CE requirements.
The course begins with an overview of the Office of Financial Regulation (OFR), the Division of Consumer Finance, the NMLS, and the adoption of the federal SAFE Act. The bulk of the class reviews relevant sections of the Florida Statutes Title 33, Chapter 494 and the Florida Administrative Code, Chapter 69V-40. We will go over a few recent amendments to the law and the most recent information on the adoption of Electronic Surety Bonds in Florida and throughout the country.
