Certified Bank Foreclosure Examiner


The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) is calling for independent reviews of almost 4.5 million loans. According to the OCC, Bank Foreclosure Examiners will review the self-assessments, corrective actions, and any determinations of financial harm and related remediation in the next quarterly review or examination of the bank. This applies to such major banks as Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Ally Financial, among others, and could affect as many as 4.5 million loans that faced foreclosure action.

In response to this action, Mortgage University® has teamed up again with the National Association of Mortgage Underwriters® (NAMU®) to offer a proprietary "professional development" training & certification program entitled: Certified Bank Foreclosure Examiner (NAMU®-CBFE), which combines a 6-hour live, instructor-led online training webinar with a 30-question exam & background check.
