MBA Education School of Loan Origination Oct. 16-Nov. 13

MBA Education presents its popular School of Loan Origination instructor-guided online course beginning Monday, Oct. 16 and running through Nov. 13.

School of Loan Origination is a four-week instructor-guided online course designed for mortgage originators who have recently passed the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System pre-licensing course or have three years or less employment experience as a mortgage loan originator and for processors considering a sales position.

The course provides an in-depth working knowledge of how to originate residential mortgage loans. It begins with a historical perspective of how past practices led us to the current environment. It then teaches competencies on how to originate compliant and quality-based mortgage loans by focusing on minimizing risk of repurchases and reducing the number of “touches” on the file.

The course is presented in a blend of self-study and instructor-guided learning, all from the comfort of your own desk. The course includes live two-hour webinars on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during four consecutive weeks. The webinars encourage participant interaction with the instructor and other industry experts.

Students who successfully complete the course requirements will receive a certificate of completion for employee training transcript purposes.
