This 4-hour course covers state-specific rules and regulations in Nevada, and is required as part of the 30 hours of pre-license education needed to become a Nevada licensed mortgage loan originator. This course covers only state-specific content. The remainder of your required 30-hour pre-license education will be covered by additional separate courses.

  • Final Exam (20 minutes)

Total study time: 4 credit hours (200 minutes)

Module 1: Introduction

In this module we are going to discuss Nevada law and rule requirements relating to operating a mortgage business in Nevada. The laws relating to how a mortgage loan originator is to operate and conduct their affairs are based upon both statutory and administrative rules.

Module 2: Mortgage Licensing

In this module we'll introduce you to the steps for obtaining a mortgage loan originators in Nevada. An MLO license can only be grated to a natural person (i.e., an individual) who completes the necessary requirements for being authorized by the Nevada Division of Mortgage Lending to participate in residential mortgage origination activities with the expectation of compensation. MLOs work with clients to locate a mortgage product that best fits within the clients' financial means.

Module 3: The Operation of Mortgage Companies

The previous module covered licensing matters for individual mortgage loan originators. Now we turn our attention to the licensing and operating of mortgage companies. This will include escrow and trust accounts, appropriate consumer disclosures, advertisements, responsibilities when handling employees, and prohibited acts.

Module 4: Foreclosure Service Providers

This module covers various consumer protections in relation to foreclosure consultations, loan modifications, and loan servicing.

Unfair lending practices set homeowners up for failure. By lending individuals more money that their homes are actually worth, consumers are often unaware of what they agree to until it is too late.

Nevada has defined certain practices as unfair lending practices and has prohibited lending in these capacities.

Category: PE Elective

View Course Syllabus

​​​​​​​This course is designed to prepare candidates to take the exam to become a state-licensed mortgage loan originator in Idaho under the Idaho Department of Finance (the Department). This 2-hour course covers Idaho specific rules and regulations as mandated by the Department, and is required as part of the 20 hours of prelicensure education needed to become an Idaho-licensed mortgage loan originator.

Topics and Learning Objectives

This course consists of four modules and a final exam:

  1. The Idaho Department of Finance

  2. Licensing and Examinations
  3. Records, Procedures, and Advertising
  4. Prohibitions, Investigations, and Enforcement
  5. Final Exam

Total study time: 2 credit hours

Module 1: The Idaho Department of Finance

The Idaho Department of Finance (the "Department") was created by the Idaho State Legislature in 1905 with the purpose of regulating the Idaho financial services industry. The Department was initially responsible for administering the Idaho Bank Act, which solely governed banks. This module reviews the Departments and its bureaus.

Module 2: Licensing and Examinations

Understanding compliant Idaho mortgage loan origination practices and procedures requires an exploration of the Idaho Residential Mortgage Practices Act (IRMPA), codified in Idaho Code (IC) Title 26, Chapter 31. Through this legislative agenda, we will review required practices, compliance, considerations, and prohibitions of mortgage professionals operating throughout Idaho.

Module 3: Records, Procedures, and Advertising

The Idaho Residential Mortgage Practices Act outlines the responsibilities of mortgage brokers and lenders when it comes to recordkeeping, disclosures, and reporting. This module will cover a licensee's duty with regards to their files, their advertisements, and their NMLS ID. We'll also discuss the Idaho mortgage recovery fund, a reserve set aside for paying consumers who were wronged by the acts of unethical mortgage licensees. Money paid into the fund comes from fees collected at initial licensing and at license renewal, with mortgage branch and home licensees paying more into the mortgage recovery fund then mortgage loan originator licensees.

Module 4: Prohibitions, Investigations, and Enforcement

The Idaho Residential Mortgage Practices Act (IRMPA) establishes actions, behaviors, and practices which Idaho-licensed mortgage lenders and brokers are prohibited from committing. Idaho-licensed mortgage loan originators are equally prohibited from violating the IRMPA through the commission of prohibited conduct. In this module, we'll cover actions that can jeopardize a licensee's good standing with the Department.

This course is designed to prepare candidates to take the exam to become a state-licensed mortgage loan originator in Arizona under the Arizona Department of Financial Institutions (DFI). This 4-hour course covers Arizona specific rules and regulations, and is required as part of the 20 hours of prelicensure education needed to become an Arizona mortgage loan originator.

Topics and Learning Objectives

This course consists of five modules and a final exam:

  1. Mortgage Broker Licensing and Regulations (40 minutes)
  2. Mortgage Banker Licensing and Regulations (50 minutes)
  3. Mortgage Loan Originator Licensing and Regulations (40 minutes)
  4. The AZDFI Mortgage Recovery Fund (30 minutes)
  5. AZDFI Disciplinary Actions (20 minutes)
  6. Final Exam (20 minutes)

Total study time: 4 credit hours (200 minutes)

Module 1: Mortgage Broker Licensing and Regulations

In this module we will cover the licensing of mortgage broker. A mortgage broker is a person who, with the expectation of being paid for their services, directly or indirectly can make a mortgage loan or can negotiate a mortgage loan. A mortgage loan is a financial arrangement secured by an interest in real property located in Arizona that is created with the consent of the real property's owner. A mortgage broker can make a mortgage loan on both residential real property and commercial real property, depending on the license status.

Module 2: Mortgage Banker Licensing and Regulations

This module will cover the licensing of Arizona mortgage bankers. A mortgage banker is a person who, with the expectation of being paid for their services, directly or indirectly can make a mortgage banking loan or can negotiate a mortgage banking loan. A mortgage banking loan is a loan funded exclusively from the mortgage banker's own resources that is directly or indirectly secured by an interest on real estate located in the State of Arizona and is created with the consent of the real property owner. Mortgage bankers can issue mortgage loans on both residential and commercial real property. A mortgage banker license also allows for the servicing (i.e., collecting payments) of mortgage loans.

Module 3: Mortgage Loan Originator Licensing and Regulations

In this chapter we'll describe the licensing of mortgage loan originators. A mortgage loan originator is a natural person (i.e., an individual) who, for the expectation of compensation, takes a mortgage loan application for a borrower, offers or negotiates the terms of a residential mortgage loan, or negotiates with a borrower's lender for a temporary or permanent loan modification. Note that mortgage loan originators do not make mortgage loans, whether residential or commercial, like mortgage brokers or mortgage bankers. MLOs act as the intermediary between a loan applicant and a mortgage lender, mortgage broker, or mortgage banker.

Module 4: The AZDFI Mortgage Recovery Fund

The Department of Financial Institutions' mortgage recovery fund can be used by the Superintendent to pay for damages caused by a malicious licensee when the licensee's surety bond cannot cover the judgment issued against the licensee. This module will explain the use of the fund by the Superintendent, how claims are filed against the fund, and how payments are issued from the fund.

Module 5: AZDFI Disciplinary Actions

As the regulatory agency assigned to oversee Arizona mortgage lending activities, the Department of Financial Institutions and its principal Superintendent have the authority to discipline licensees under its jurisdiction. The module will explain the authority granted to the AZDFI to protect financial lending consumers.

NMLS ID Required

You must have an NMLS ID to receive credit for this course. You will need this number before you begin the course.

  2. Maintaining a License (45 minutes)
  3. Security Devices (45 minutes)
  4. State Conduct Rules (45 minutes)
  5. Final Exam (20 minutes)

Total study time: 4 clock hours

Module 1: Mortgage Lending Licensing

In this chapter we'll introduce you to the government agency that oversees the mortgage industry in our state, the Washington State Department of Financial Institutions (DFI). We'll also introduce you to the Mortgage Broker Practices Act (MBPA) and the Consumer Loan Act (CLA), the state laws the define the authorization requirements for license applicants as well as the conduct of licensed mortgage loan originators and mortgage brokers.

Module 2: Maintaining A License

After being granted a license by the Department of Financial Institutions, a licensee is required to conduct themselves under the rules of the department. In this chapter we'll explain how to renew a license, the record keeping requirements expected of licensees, and how to comply with DFI requirements. Trust account regulations will also be covered, outlining a mortgage broker's responsibilities when handling funds given to them in trust. Licensees also have reporting responsibilities to the DFI when information about their license status changes such as legal name changes, email address updates, or if criminal charges have been filed against the licensee.

Module 3: Security Devices

In this chapter we'll break down various types of security devices: promissory notes, deeds of trusts, and mortgages. First we will outline the components of a promissory note and how these notes may be negotiable. Then we'll describe both mortgage and trust deeds, the security interest the lender has in the property, and discuss the differences between these two security instruments. You'll also learn what happens when a borrower's security instrument must be foreclosed because the borrower cannot comply with their promise to repay.

Module 4: State Conduct Rules

In this last chapter, we'll outline the activities and conduct that a licensee cannot participate in under Washington. If the DFI finds a licensee has partaken in activities that harm consumers or the lending industry, the agency has the authority to punish the licensee by imposing fines and removing a licensee's authorization to conduct lending activities in this state. We'll also describe what information must be outlined in writing by a licensee to be disclosed to a consumer or borrower, and identify fees that can be counted towards a licensee's commission for successfully walking a borrower through their loan.

Module 2: New Mexico Licensure Steps

Before you can accept a residential mortgage loan application from a potential borrower, or offer to arrange or negotiate a loan transaction for an applicant, with the expectation of being compensated for your efforts, you need to be licensed as a mortgage loan originator. This module will explain the requirements for obtaining an MLO license from the Financial Institutions Division.

Module 3: Complying with the Mortgage Loan Company Act

Once a mortgage company or mortgage originator has obtained a license under the Mortgage Loan Company Act or the Mortgage Loan Originator Licensing Act, the licensee must follow rules and procedures contained in the Acts. The Financial Institutions Division of the Regulation and Licensing Department has a number of enforcement and sanction powers should a licensee or an affiliate not comply with the Acts or the terms of their license.

Module 4: Complying with the Mortgage Loan Originator Licensing Act

In writing and passing the Mortgage Loan Originator Licensing Act, the New Mexico legislature emphasized the importance of mortgage loan origination services to the state’s people, communities, and economy. At the same time, lawmakers said, reasonable licensing and regulatory standards are "essential for the protection of the residents of New Mexico and the stability of New Mexico’s economy[.]" (NM Stat 58-21B-2.A) With this explicit consumer-protection focus, the Act contains more requirements, and is in some ways more specific in those requirements, than the Mortgage Loan Company Act.

In this module, we'll cover the acts outlined by the MLOLA that mortgage loan originators must follow as part of the authorization given to them as a New Mexico licensee.

Module 5: The New Mexico Home Loan Protection Act

The New Mexico Home Loan Protection Act (HLPA) contains rules and regulations intended to protect New Mexico residential mortgage borrowers from deceptive acts initiated by tricky lenders.
