This course will cover many prohibited acts that Washington mortgage loan originators must be familiar with when practicing mortgage loan activities within the state. Students will learn what actions are prohibited by the Revised Code of Washington and the Washington Administrative Code.

After being instructed on what not to do, students will be presented with a list of subjects which they must do during their business. This includes what to do when working for more than one mortgage broker, how to properly use trade names, and licensing of main and branch offices.

Lastly, students will review the Washington required disclosures that must be given to loan applicants.
