FHA/VA Training

educationThe training needs for FHA and VA loan programs vary greatly from one lender or broker to the next. We recognize the need for customized agenda’s and multiple delivery formats to accommodate small or large staff and crazy schedules.
We stand behind our students long after they have finished a course. Students and companies may contact our instructors any time with questions and if we don’t have the answer we’ll find someone who does. Our network of contacts across all lines of mortgage originations and wide ranges of philosophies gives us the ability to answer questions no one else wants to. We will make sure you know what FHA states in writing, what lenders are implementing and why in order for you to make the right FHA choices.

FHA Fundamentals

Our cornerstone FHA program has trained over 10,000 individuals. Our FHA Fundamentals workbook has become a widely used referenced tool with over 300 pages of valuable tips, checklists and best practices. Created with both beginners and those with experience in mind, this focused and lively workshop will guide you through origination, processing and underwriting requirements of FHA Mortgages. Our experts have developed the ultimate one-day course in which you will learn how to calculate the maximum mortgage amount; mortgage insurance premiums and closing costs. You’ll brush up on the many forms used through processing, understand their purpose and how to avoid problems in an audit. Discover the secrets to determining if an FHA loan is right for your customer and be ready to handle both purchase and refinance transactions. You’ll walk away with our top-notch reference manual, which contains excerpts from the HUD Handbook 4155.1, several mortgagee letters, all the FHA specific forms and easy to use worksheets and checklists, — all the tools you need to help you sell the true benefits of the FHA 203b loan program.
