About this course: 

The Mortgage Broker Fundamentals – Practical Applications Course is a class for new or aspiring brokers, and for persons who manage them. It provides practical knowledge and skills needed to function as a mortgage broker.

The course is split into two parts, the first part concerns practical matters a mortgage broker needs to know to operate in the field while the second addresses brokering practice requirements. The first part will make you a better and hopefully more successful broker. It will support what it takes for a broker to earn income. The second will protect you by better ensuring you are entitled to continue as a broker and to keep the income you earn. It will help keep you out of trouble with your clients, the regulator, and the courts.

The course is taught by a variety of senior brokers, experts, and others with considerable knowledge of the topics they address. It is better that a student learns from a variety of perspectives and hears a variety of knowledgeable voices.

Discovering the mortgage broker course was a game-changer; I only wished I had known about it earlier. Nonetheless, I firmly believe that this comprehensive course should be a mandatory requirement for all newcomers entering the industry. The unparalleled access to industry leaders and their insights was an exceptional experience that left me empowered and ready to tackle challenges. I know CMBABC will be an instrumental part of my future success. For that, I am forever grateful!
