The first module of the course is about sweeping laws and rules that apply to mortgage loans and mortgage loan originators across the country. A review of the SAFE Act, NMLS registration, an overview of state licensing standards, Regulation Z, and Integrated Mortgage Disclosures will make the bulk of the module. 

The second module deals with ethical considerations and consumer protection. An MLO's ethical responsibilities and the ATR/QM rule are demonstrated. Then, fraud, both from within and outside of the mortgage industry makes up the second half of the module. Fair lending practices and balancing one's business aspirations with the health of the market are emphasized.

The third module examines non-traditional mortgage loan products like adjustable rate mortgages and reverse mortgages. The HECM program is featured, along with its changes, its current state, plans for adjustment, and how the world of non-traditional mortgage lending might be evolving.

A final exam will ask 25 questions randomly drawn from the general education portion of the package.

The 1-hour course on Pennsylvania laws and regulations fulfills the state elective requirement for annual renewal. 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 this 1 hour of state-specific content.
