​​​​​​​graphicThe Commissioner of the Kentucky Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) requires mortgage licensees in this state to take a one-hour course on Kentucky mortgage lending rules as part of the licensees' annual continuing education requirement for license renewal. This course covers Kentucky mortgage topics for licensee continuing education.

The first module of this course outlines the branches within the DFI and reviews several definitions outlined in Kentucky Revised Statute (KRS) chapter 286, the regulation that defines mortgage lending services in this state. We'll review initial licensing requirements and the steps needed to maintain the authorized license.

The second module explains compliance requirements and disciplinary actions available to the commissioner. We'll outline prohibited conduct that licensees should avoid as well as explain conduct that are expected during the lending process. This course will also define the limitations on fees and the state usury regulations, actions that might result in license suspension, and the commissioner's available penalties that can be ordered against guilty licensees.

This course consists of two modules and a final exam:

  1. Module 1: Kentucky DFI, State Law Definitions, and State License Law (15 minutes)
