​​​​​​​The New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS) requires New York mortgage licensees to complete a total of 11 continuing education hours each year: 3 hours of federal law, 2 hours of ethics, 2 hours of non-traditional mortgages, 1 hour of general elective, and 3 hours of New York specific education. This three-hour online course meets the New York state-specific mortgage licensee continuing education requirements for annual license renewal.

This course begins with an explanation of mortgage lending consumer protection in regards to high-cost home loans, subprime loans, fair lending, and home equity theft prevention. The second module of this course identifies and lists the various disclosures that will educate consumers on areas such as advertising home loan products, loan commitment, secondary mortgages, and late fees. The third and last module will review the licensing and education requirements for MLOs.

Topics and Learning Objectives

This course is broken down into several learning topics. At the end of the course a 25-question final exam will be given. The topics included in this course are:

  1. Introduction (5 minutes)
  2. Module 1: Mortgage Lending Consumer Protections (35 minutes)
  3. Module 2: New York State Mortgage Disclosures (50 minutes)
  4. Module 3: MLO Licensing and Prohibited Conduct (40 minutes)
