This 8 hour class satisfies all of the requirements for continuing education updates for Mortgage Loan Originators in the state of Michigan, both with the Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services and for the NMLS.

Our Mortgage Loan Originator course for the state of Michigan begins by providing the student with a module that covers the history of Federal Mortgage Lending laws. We review the SAFE Act in this portion also. Then we include an overview of the federal agencies responsible for oversight of mortgage practices in America. We also provide information on the TILA-RESPA Integrated Mortgage Disclosure (TRID).

The class then continues as we examine ethics, consumer protections and fair lending practices as well. During this portion we look at the larger concepts of ethics and fair lending as they relate to mortgage loan originators in the field. During this portion we also cover the basics of what can constitute fraud and how MLOs can avoid some of these pitfalls. A portion of the course also provides an in-depth examination of lending standards for nontraditional mortgage loans that include adjustable rate mortgages, subprime and high-cost loans, and reverse mortgages as well.

During our instruction, we keep the student engaged with in-text quizzes and case studies that you can use to spot-check your knowledge. It will also help prepare you for the final exam that comes at the conclusion of the class.

Easy to navigate, great content.

I needed a course that I could take at my own pace and come back to when I had time. This course was perfect.

December 3rd, 2018
just about the right amount of information the bio signature thing is a pain in the butt

November 28th, 2018
Quick and Easy to understand. A couple of the quiz questions were confusing to understand what was actually being asked.

November 8th, 2018
Love your course. Best on-line ever.

October 29th, 2018
Course was pretty much a repeat of information I have learned. However, it's nice to have. It's a refresher to make sure I retain all important information. I really enjoyed the case studies. They were extremely helpful. I would suggest keeping them.

September 6th, 2018
I thought it was pretty decent. The course material was fairly basic. Redundant from previous years, but that may just be the nature of CE, only so much to say. The website was easy to work though and was as good as any other CE service I have used.

the narrative in the last module was too vague for the quesiotns.

December 13th, 2018
The final questions were a bit wordy and not consistent with the course necessarily. I know, trying to trick us!

November 8th, 2018
Not bad but some of the "test" could use some more detail for answers

October 10th, 2018
I do think some of the quiz questions did not belong .
