Our Texas 8-Hour SAFE Comprehensive Mortgage Loan Originator (MLO) Continuing Education Course was developed specifically to help Texas MLOs meet their continuing education requirements with a smartly organized and professionally presented continuing education package. In this presentation, we'll cover both Texas and federal aspects of mortgage loan origination, as well as focus on several crucial subjects including the Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act of 2008 (SAFE Act), ethics for MLOs, fraud and consumer protection, lending standards for non-traditional mortgages, subprime loans, and reverse mortgages. And, we'll provide updates regarding Texas laws, regulations, and enforcement powers in mortgage loan origination. We'll also spend time updating and reviewing changes stemming from the Truth-In-Lending-Act and Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (TILA-RESPA) Integrated Mortgage Disclosure Act (TRID). And, to top it all off, we've provided a variety of quizzes and activities designed to challenge and improve your mortgage loan originating skills.

This was a great course for anyone who prefers to actually read, review the material, and learn or refresh themselves about the latest updates. This is absolutely one of the best NMLS-approved courses that I have seen for the price it is being offered. Thanks!

September 4th, 2018
This was a good class. The help desk was very helpful when assisting me with the bio-sig

September 2nd, 2018
The bio sigs are too dang sensitive....you need to take that out and just make it a passcode

September 2nd, 2018
The Biosig is to sensitive. I had to get an authenticity code twice while doing the course.

September 2nd, 2018
The bio signature is wayyyyy to sensitive, resulting in multiple attempts, and getting locked out.

August 20th, 2018
the course was good, but the case studies were too long

July 25th, 2018
Easy self-paced program

November 3rd, 2018
Some of the test questions are misleading and a few are incorrect as they pertain to state law and I’m assuming your wanting answers to just the material instead. Fyi
