The Director of the Idaho Department of Finance (DOF) requires mortgage licensees in this state to take a one-hour course on Idaho mortgage lending rules as part of the licensees' annual continuing education requirement for license renewal. This course covers Idaho mortgage topics for licensee continuing education.

The first module of this course describes the organization of the Department of Finance and reviews several mortgage definitions outlined by the Idaho Residential Mortgage Practices Act (IRMPA). We'll also summarize the Idaho regulations relating to exemptions to licensing and how to maintain an active license.

The second module explains the acts and practices that are prohibited for mortgage loan originators to participate in. We'll discuss the maximum points and fees that can be charged to a borrower, describe the disciplinary actions that can be taken against licensees, including fines, and finally we'll summarize the Idaho Financial Fraud Protection Act (IFFPA) and its interpretation of financial fraud.
