​​​​​​​graphicThe Georgia Department of Banking and Finance (DBF) requires mortgage licensees in this state to take a one-hour course on Georgia mortgage lending rules as part of the licensees' annual continuing education requirement for license renewal. This course covers three Georgia mortgage topics for licensee continuing education.

The first module of this course is an overview of the Department of Banking and Finance. Students will learn the values of the DBF and how the department is structured.

The second module of the course examines various rules outlined in Official Code of Georgia Annotated (OCGA) §7-1-1000 to §7-1-1019. These regulations cover mortgage licensing, prohibited conduct, and the authority of the DBF.

The third and last module identifies other mortgage lending laws defined in Georgia Rules and Regulations (R&R) § 80-11-1. We'll cover disclosures, advertisement regulations, and main/branch offices.
