Reverse mortgages – especially FHA’s Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) program – have become a valuable financial services tool for aging homeowners who wish to use their home equity to finance their retirement years. Students who specialize in reverse mortgages should have a basic understanding of the history and congressional intent of the HECM program, recent and pending regulatory changes, and product options, such as HECM for Purchase. Because reverse mortgage specialists work with a protected class of American citizens, it’s equally important that we instill a sense of ethical behavior in students, and that they recognize the potential signs of elder abuse, so that they can better serve their aging clients.

NMLS charges $1.50 per credit hour to upload CE credits. You will not be charged additionally for this as this fee is already factored into the cost of the course.
