Free online orientation and training course for real estate agents who still need to get ready for October 3, 2015 TRID

(Jeff Sorg, OnlineEd) When it comes to TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure, training is key for your real estate company’s successful transition, and to avoid delayed closings. To help get you up to date, OnlineEd is offering an absolutely free online orientation and training course for anyone who still needs to get ready for the upcoming August 1, 2015 changes. 

Four of the forms disclosing loan details and settlement statements that every real estate agent is familiar with, including the HUD-1 Settlement Statement, will be replaced on  October 3, 2015. On that date forward, the information present in four to-be-defunct forms will be presented in two new forms:

  1. the Loan Estimate; and
  2. the Closing Disclosure.

As a practicing real estate licensees, it is important for your company to understand the content of these new forms in order to be able to explain them to your clients. The OnlineEd 3-hour free course gives a line-by-line synopsis of these two forms. Enroll individually here, or give us as call at 866.519.9597 for instructions to complete an enrollment for your entire company.
