Lenders & The Mortgage Life Cycle

 

THE MLC 300x200

The past couple of years has brought unprecedented changes to the way we do business.  Has your training kept up?

Knowing the regulatory requirements is challenging enough.  You also need to make sure your file documentation lines up.  Do you often wish you had a “how-to” guide for mortgage lending?

 

Let us take care of you!

 

Lenders need to have sufficient training to ensure compliance through all phases of the mortgage loan process. 

 

Since we train and develop new lenders every day, many institutions want to know the best and most efficient way to do so. 

 

The Answer –

 

The Mortgage Life Cycle

The Mortgage Life Cycle is a unique training opportunity.  Our experts use our plain English approach to walk you through the different stages and related regulatory requirements of the mortgage life cycle.

 

The training is presented in chronological order.  It starts with pre-application requirements and walks you step by step through the post-closing servicing requirements.  You will gain a better understanding of the mortgage lending requirements which will help you avoid costly violations.

 

The training also includes a highly sought-after resource manual that can be referenced again and again.

 

The Mortgage Life Cycle is the perfect solution, regardless of whether you’re training someone new to mortgage lending or providing a refresher for those with years of experience. One registration gets your whole team trained.
