View Course Syllabus

The Connecticut Department of Banking requires mortgage licensees in this state to take a one-hour course on Connecticut mortgage lending rules as part of the licensees' annual continuing education requirement for license renewal. This course covers the four topics relating to Connecticut mortgage regulations.

This four-module course begins with an overview of the Department of Banking. We'll then review the Connecticut Abusive Home Loan Lending Practices Act (Conn. Gen. Stat. § 36a-746), various other important lending regulations, such as nonprime mortgages and title insurance issues, and conclude with a review of Connecticut mortgage licensing requirements.

Topics and Learning Objectives

This course is broken down into several learning topics. At the end of the course a 15-question final exam will be given. The topics included in this course are:

  1. Overview of the Connecticut Department of Banking (10 minutes)
  2. Connecticut Abusive Home Loan Lending Practices Act (10 minutes)
  3. Other Mortgage and Loan Practices (10 minutes)
  4. Connecticut Mortgage Licensing Requirements (10 minutes)
  5. Final exam (10 minutes)
