Charter Oak Systems conducts its virtual classes in strict accordance with the requirements and guidelines of the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System.  Our 20-Hour Comprehensive PE course requires that you complete the entire 20-hour course curriculum in-order to receive credit for the course.  We do not issue partial credit for partial or incomplete course completion.  The course is divided into sections that provide instruction in each of the categories required to satisfy the 20 —hours of PEU’s required.  Instruction occurs during 20 individual course segments of one CEU hour of 50 minutes or more.

Sec 1.5.2.3 of the 2017 Functional Specification for All NMLS Approved Courses.

Online instructor-led (online PE) courses are required to be designed and delivered such that the instructor leads the course with all students through instructor-to-student student-to-student interaction. This interactivity is required to be continual and obvious throughout the entire course. The delivery of an online PE course in a self-study format is prohibited.

Note: The availability of Online Instructor-Led courses is intended to ensure an option exist for individuals where attending a classroom course may be problematic due to geography or lack of availability of a local course provider. The scheduling of these courses is not intended to be a “convenience” option whereby a student can causally work at their own pace or when their schedule allows. Students taking these courses are required to allocate personal/professional time and put forth the same level of effort as would be required to complete a classroom or classroom equivalent course. During the time period in which the course is being offered, instructors are required to hold students accountable for attendance and work, and must be responsive to student’s assignments and questions just as they would be in a physical classroom.

 

Refunds will not be issued once you sign into the learning management system and register for a course.   You are only required to pay for a course when you intend to start it.  You may not pre-pay for a course.  Once you have paid for a course and accessed the content you may not receive a refund. 

If a student is unable to complete the coursework in the scheduled time or needs to cancel for any reason, the amount paid will be applied to future session of the same course within a one-year period.

Course Cancelation Policy

In the unlikely event that a course is canceled or no longer available, for any reason including insufficient enrollment, you will be given a complete refund or the opportunity to transfer to another like course at no charge.

You must pay attention and take written notes during the presentation using the documentation worksheets provided.  The presentation will provide you with all the information you need to successfully complete the activities and the session quizzes. 

The presentation requires you to respond at various intervals to simple tasks which require you to pay close attention to the video and audio.  Failure to respond to these cues will cause the session to end.    The cues may only appear on the screen and may not be part of the presentation audio so you must both watch, listen and participate in-order to successfully complete each session.
