NMLS FBI Criminal History Record Information Training - Understanding the FBI Criminal History Records Webinar

August 11, 2011 -The S.A.F.E. Act requires criminal background checks be conducted on both state licensed and federally registered mortgage loan originators. State regulatory agencies review these checks prior to conferring a license; federally regulated institutions are required to review the results of Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) criminal background checks performed on their mortgage loan originators as part of the federal registration process. 

The National Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS) is sponsoring a professionally-moderated conference call and webinar for state regulators and institutions to learn directly from FBI experts how information contained in a criminal background check is compiled and how to understand that information. 

The webinar will take place Thursday, August 18, 2011 from 2:00-3:30 pm ET.  In order to register for this event, participants will need to create a login ID on the website of the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS). CSBS is the professional association of state bank regulatory agencies and often works closely with NASCUS concerning the preservation of the state financial services system.

    The webinar will cover:

  • What information is contained in a criminal background check result.
  • How criminal history information is used.
  • How to read and interpret a criminal background check result.
  • How criminal history information should used and disseminated by institutions.

    Who should attend?
  • All employees of federally-chartered or insured institutions who have the responsibility to review Criminal History Record Information (CHRI) through NMLS for purposes of registering mortgage loan originators.
  • State mortgage regulatory agencies who have or will have access to FBI Criminal History Records through NMLS

Webinar presenters will include experts from the FBI and CSBS. The registration fee for this professionally-moderated workshop is $99, which entitles the registrant to one conference call dial-in and one webinar login for the audio and visual portions respectively.
