Licensed mortgage loan originators in Florida must take seven hours of annual renewal education. Three modules comprise this series, which includes recent industry updates and common violations identified by regulators.

The first module covers sweeping laws and rules that apply to mortgage loans and mortgage loan originators across the country. The bulk of this module reviews the SAFE Act, Regulation Z, and the Integrated Mortgage Disclosures.

The second module deals with business ethics and duties that apply to financial services professionals. Then, the promotion of fair lending practices related to consumer protection and requirements under the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA) takes center stage. After that, we examine ways to identify and deter predatory lending schemes and other types of mortgage fraud.

The third module looks at non-traditional mortgage loan products and the increased risks and scrutiny that accompany most 30-year fixed rate mortgage alternatives. We examine adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs), reverse mortgages, counseling requirements, high-cost and higher-priced mortgage loans, and information on lending standards. Other types of loans and financing options, including government programs and owner financing, are also considered.

Each module is followed by an assessment and quiz portion that begins with an activity. During the activity, students read a short case scenario and then answer questions based on topics covered in that section. A 25-question final exam concludes the seven-hour course.
