8 Hour SAFE Core and Nevada Law 2023 MLO Package for Qualified Employees
- 8 Hour Course
Licensed mortgage loan originators in the state must take 8 hours of continuing education each year, with 3 hours being dedicated to Federal law, 2 hours of ethics, 2 hours of non-traditional mortgage lending, and an hour of state-specific content.
We’ll begin the one-hour state portion with a look at the Nevada division of Mortgage Lending, and continue into important definitions for Nevada mortgage personnel. Next, we explore regulations that affect industry professionals, such as reporting requirements, fiduciary mandates, examination and audit laws and codes, statutes that regulate the reporting and maintenance of records, and financial transactions. The module continues with detailed information on trust and impound accounts and how mismanagement may derail the professional, and ends with a look at trust deeds and their processes.
In the second module of the state portion, the course considers advertising and related disclosures, as well as as laws regarding investors. The section continues, and looks at how noncompliance with child support obligations can impede a licensee’s authority. Nevada Covered Service Providers are discussed. Next is an in-depth discussion on complaints, and associated investigations. The module concludes with details on violations, how they may affect a professional’s ability to remain in the industry if not addressed.
To promote comprehension, students will complete a 5-question quiz and short activity after each module. A 15-question final exam will wrap up the state portion.
