Required Training for Loan Originators

Recorded on April 29, 2014


On January 20, 2013 the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) published final rules that revised the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) to require creditors to establish and maintain loan originator qualification requirements. One of the qualification requirements mandates that a creditor provide adequate training for loan originators. The final rules were effective on January 1, 2014. This program explains the training requirements contained in Section 1026.36(f)(3)(iii).
