The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) has announced it would begin to offer Level I of the new Certified Mortgage Compliance Professional (CMCP) designation
, the only certification and designation program geared exclusively towards compliance professionals in the mortgage finance industry. Individuals achieving this designation will be recognized for their commitment to compliance with federal and state regulations.
“The launch of this program demonstrates MBA’s commitment to providing top quality content and being the industry’s most trusted source for mortgage finance training,” said Pete Mills, Senior Vice President of Residential Policy and Member Engagement at MBA. “Having a sound training program is a crucial element in a company’s compliance management system and this designation will provide an accessible, affordable and consistent means of educating your compliance workforce and documenting those efforts.”
The 18 courses in Level I program offers roughly 30 hours of self-paced content covering the fundamentals of the regulatory ecosystem. Students will be tested on how the regulations fit in the residential loan lifecycle, the critical rules and regulations that impact our industry, and how to apply the regulations to common business practices and situations.
“A compliance designation is absolutely critical for an industry as tightly regulated as mortgage banking,” said Josh Weinberg, Executive Vice President of Compliance at First Choice Loan Services Inc. and Chair of the Curriculum Advisory Council. “With the strength of their policy and advocacy work, MBA was the logical choice to not only manage the designation, but to develop the curriculum.”
