View Course Syllabus

The Hawaii Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs (DCCA) and its Division of Financial Institutions (DFI) requires mortgage licensees in this state to take a one-hour course on Hawaii mortgage lending rules as part of the licensees' annual continuing education requirement for license renewal. This course covers topics relating to Hawaii mortgage regulations.

This two-module course will cover the Hawaii SAFE Act and the Hawaii Mortgage Rescue Fraud Prevention Act.

In our first module we'll begin with a review of the DCCA and the DFI. We'll then cover the duties requires for a Qualified Individual and a Branch Manager, explain the oversight authority of the Commissioner of DFI, and list the prohibited conduct that licensees are not to do during their practice of residential mortgage loan origination.

In the second module we'll explain the purpose of the Hawaii Mortgage Rescue Fraud Prevention Act and the behavior expected of distressed property consultants, including contract requirements. We'll also cover the obligations of the consultant for conveying property and leasing the property back to the original homeowner. Finally we'll list prohibited conduct for distressed property consultants.
