Instructor-Led Online Course
The VA Home Loan Guaranty has been providing our servicemen and women the opportunity to obtain the American Dream of homeownership since World War II. Many veterans look to these programs to find an affordable and reliable means to get their home. These powerful programs can be a challenge to many mortgage professionals. Working with the variety of unique requirements and disclosures can be a daunting task.
AllRegs Academy's Underwriting VA Loans provides clear instruction for those looking to add the VA program to their existing product mix. The course explains guidelines and provides strong advice from industry experts who have worked with the programs personally. The target audience would include processors, underwriters, quality control staff, and anyone who wants to better understand the underwriting process of VA loans.
Participants will be introduced to VA loan programs, VA eligibility and entitlement, applicant and property requirements.
By the end of the course, students will be able to distinguish between Conventional and VA loan requirements, determine VA loan guaranty based on eligibility and entitlement, calculate VA loan maximum mortgage, and perform a credit analysis of borrower documentation consisting of income, asset, and liability; as well as determining allowable seller contributions and closing costs.
Classes consist of four 90-minute live sessions with instructors delivered through the WebEx conferencing platform.
Upon successful completion of this course, you will earn 6 hours of credit towards the Residential Government Underwriter (RGU) certification.

What do you hope your students learn from this course? In every class I teach, I hope my students leave with a thorough knowledge of the subject I'm teaching in addition to knowing what resources are there for them to find the answers to things they might not know or run into later. For FHA, I want them to be able to go into an FHA file and be able to tell if it meets FHA guidelines. For VA, the same thing, want them to know if the loan meets the VA guidelines which are cumbersome to say the least! If it's a collateral analysis class, I hope that I focus on the main issues on the URAR and show them how to determine if the appraisal is a good one.

What do you hope your students learn from this course? I hope to provide a slightly different view point on the topic. I have been the salesman trying to get underwriting to approve a deal, and I have been the underwriter listening to the salesman’s plea to approve the deal. I hope to share my well-rounded perspective with the students.
