    Important Recent Updates:

    • On 4/26/21 NAMP® no longer requires a 3rd-party criminal background check in order to obtain certification given employers typically conduct their own background check on new new employees.

    • On 4/5/22 the searchable “NAMP® Certificant Directory” was removed from NAMP®’s website to help prevent solicitors from finding graduates in bulk and emailing them unwanted spam. However, if a student needs to verify their NAMP® certification status to an employer, we can still provide the student with a direct link to their profile page, upon request.

    • On 4/28/22 the passing score for all NAMP® Certification exams was changed from “80% or greater” to “75% or greater” to keep consistent with industry standards, such as the NMLS Licensure exam pass score of 75%.

    • On 4/28/22 all NAMP® Certification programs are limited to US residents only. Student who reside outside the United States may still take the CampusMortgage® training classes, and will receive a certificate of completion for each class — but will not attain NAMP® certification.

    Course Updates: Mortgage regulations & guidelines can change throughout the year. With that said, we make every effort to keep our students updated and do this in a variety of ways. We start with an annual review of each course to determine if full, partial or no revamping is needed, and will revise the course(s) once a year accordingly. We also give each student one year to ask questions directly to our instructors which can help in gaining clarity on any new legislative or rule changes not reflected in the course content. From here, we may put together supplemental “update” webinars, if deemed necessary -- which are made available to each “active” student upon request, at no extra cost. Finally, we post weekly training videos and articles within our weekly e-newsletter, The Mortgage Standard, which often cover breaking mortgage news & proposed legislative changes.

     

    Testimonial Disclaimer: In accordance with the FTC guidelines concerning the use of endorsements and testimonials in advertising, please be aware of the following:

    • Testimonials appearing on this website are received in various forms via a variety of submission methods. The testimonials reflect the real life experiences of individuals who used our products and/or services. However, individual results may vary. We do not claim, nor should the reader assume, that any individual experience recounted is typical or representative of what any other consumer might experience. Testimonials are not necessarily representative of what anyone else using our products and/or services may experience. The people giving testimonials on this website may have been compensated with free products or discounts for use of their experiences.

    • The testimonials displayed are given verbatim except for grammatical or typing error corrections. Some testimonials may have been edited for clarity, or shortened in cases where the original testimonial included extraneous information of no relevance to the general public. The National Association of Mortgage Processors (NAMP) is not responsible for the opinions or comments posted on this website, and does not necessarily share the opinions, views or commentary of postings on this website. All opinions expressed are strictly the views of the poster or reviewer. All testimonials are reviewed for authenticity before they are posted for public viewing.

     

    Refund Policy: No refunds or credits will be issued if a student and/or customer has logged into any recorded/“live” webinar course or has requested a Certificate of Completion for the course/certification/bootcamp/bundled package purchased. If a student and/or customer has not logged into a recorded/“live” webinar course or has not requested a Certificate of Completion, the customer is entitled to a full refund (minus a $75 administrative cancellation fee) provided a refund request is received in writing or via e-mail by NAMP® within (5) calendar days from the date of purchase. NOTE: there are no refunds on corporate sponsorship packages that include advertising, “brand awareness” initiatives, email marketing, banner ads, etc.

     

    Member/Certificant Complaint Resolution (Not Provided): We do not get involved in member/certificant complaint resolution, and as such, we will not become the judge or jury in deciding who is right and who is wrong.

     

    NAMP® Membership Phased Out (UPDATE NOTICE): NAMP® Membership was phased out on 08/25/17; therefore, NAMP® membership is no longer offered for sale. As a result, NAMP® Membership is not a requirement to obtain/maintain active NAMP® certification. Please note that all existing active NAMP® members will still have membership benefits until his/her NAMP® membership expires.

     

    Discount/Special Offer Disclaimer: After a purchase is made, all discounts, special offers, bundled package deals & coupons cannot be combined/exchanged with any other current or future special offer, promotion, discount or group offer. NOTE: All special offers, vouchers & promotions are made available to all new and existing customers — for example, if your co-worker received a voucher (discounted price and/or package deal) from us, we will always honor that same voucher to you.

     

    Job Placement Not Provided: For those students who are seeking to find job within the mortgage industry please note we do not provide job placement assistance of any kind. Aside from the current state of any given job market, there are many other factors that go into a student landing a job after obtaining NAMP® certification — which are out of NAMP®’s control (i.e. a student’s professionalism, interpersonal skills, enthusiasm, employment track record, etc.). With this is mind, we do not provide job placement assistance, nor do we guarantee a student will find a job. However, upon request we can provide a student with “job search resources” which is a PDF file containing a variety of free resources such as resume builder websites, job posting sites, etc.. NOTE: the “job search resources” PDF file is simply a minor, value-added component of what is being purchased and should not be factored in heavily when making the purchase decision.

     

    NAMP® Membership/NAMP® Certification Revocation: We reserve the right, at any time, to revoke your NAMP® certification for reasons including (but not limited to) violation of the NAMP® Code of Ethics, expiration of NAMP® certification, etc.

     

    Use of NAMP® Logo & Name on Promotional Materials: We do NOT allow certificants to use the NAMP® logo/name on any promotional materials (i.e. business cards, websites, brochures, online/print advertising, etc.). However, you may list your active NAMP® certification and active NAMP® membership on your resume and LinkedIn.com profile. For example,  you may add the NAMP® certification acronym to your LinkedIn.com profile name (for example, John Smith, NAMP®-CMLP). You may also add the NAMP® certification to your LinkedIn.com "Certifications" section of your profile, i.e. Certified Master Loan Processor (NAMP®-CMLP). NOTE: Please do NOT add your Student # as the "License #”. Remember, your NAMP® certification is not a license; it is strictly a “professional development” program.

     

    YEARLY RECERTIFICATION: In order to help ensure you’re updated each year on new mortgage regulations, guidelines and rules we require yearly recertification. If you choose to do so, a $299 recertification charge will apply; at which time, we will provide you with an additional year of access to the course materials as well as the online training classes. You’ll also have an additional 1 year to ask questions directly to the instructors. From here, you’ll be required to take a new timed 1-hour online proctored exam.

     

    Opinion-Editorial (Op-Ed) Disclaimer For NAMP® Library Articles: The views and opinions expressed in the NAMP® Library articles are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect any official NAMP® policy or position. Examples of analysis performed within this article are only examples. They should not be utilized in real-world application as they are based only on very limited and dated open source information. Assumptions made within the analysis are not reflective of the position of NAMP®.

     

    Training & Certification Disclaimer: By registering for any NAMP® or NAMU® class/certification program you hereby acknowledge you have fully read and agree to the NAMP® Terms of Use, Refund Policy & Certification Handbook. This is a Florida corporation, and all training & certification offered through NAMP®/NAMU® is "professional development" and is for informational purposes only (not to serve as licensure training or legal advice). Obtaining NAMP®/NAMU® certification does not imply you are an "expert" or "licensed" in any mortgage related field -- it simply means you have taken CampusMortgage® training classes and passed a timed online proctored exam. It also does not guarantee you will find a job. We do not provide job placement assistance. We are not owned, operated or affiliated with HUD, FHA, VA, State Government or Federal Government in any way. NAMP®/NAMU® certification is not a local, State or Federal Government issued certification. We reserve the right, at any time, to strengthen and enhance any NAMP®/NAMU® certification by changing curriculum and/or discontinuing any of the training classes included in any NAMP®/NAMU® certification. We also reserve the right, at any time, to change the NAMP®/NAMU® certification process and/or discontinue any NAMP®/NAMU® certification altogether. NOTE: NAMP®/NAMU® certification is available only to United States citizens and lawfully admitted permanent residents of the United States.

     

    NAMP Member/Certificant Directory (Public Profile) - Hold Harmless/Indemnify: Your privacy is very important to us, and we take every measure to safeguard your privacy. HOWEVER, if you provide NAMP with your Name/Profile Image as it relates to your NAMP Membership/Certification, this means you give NAMP permission to publish it within the NAMP website and NAMP Member/Certificant Directory. And as such, this means that you are allowing everyone, including people off of the NAMP website, to access and use that information, and to associate it with you (i.e., your name and profile picture). Your decision to post your Name/Profile Image within the NAMP Website and NAMP Member/Certificant Directory means you shall hold harmless and indemnify NAMP and its agents, directors, officers, members, employees and/or volunteers from any and all claims, loss, damage, costs (including court costs & attorney fees) however caused resulting from or arising out of or in any way connected to your Name/Profile Image being made public via the NAMP Website and NAMP Member/Certificant Directory. NOTE: If you prefer to not have your Name/Profile Image posted on the NAMP® Website and NAMP® Member/Certificant Directory, you may opt out at any time by simply emailing or calling us directly at 800-865-8550 Press 2, and we will promptly remove it.

     

    NAMP® Certification - Hold Harmless/Indemnify: By proceeding forward with obtaining any NAMP® certification, you hereby agree to indemnify and hold harmless NAMP® and its employees, officers, directors, trustees, shareholders, affiliates, and agents (as it relates to your NAMP® certification) from and against any and all liabilities, actions, claims, damages, costs, losses, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees & costs, arising out of (a) any negligent act or omission by you, or (b) any breach of any term contained in the NAMP® certification paperwork. This indemnification shall remain effective indefinitely and shall not terminate with the expiration or termination of your NAMP® certification.

     

    Training Class - Hold Harmless/Indemnify: By proceeding forward with taking any NAMP® or CampusMortgage® training class, you hereby agree to indemnify and hold harmless CampusMortgage® and its employees, officers, directors, trustees, shareholders, affiliates, and agents from and against any and all liabilities, actions, claims, damages, costs, losses, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees & costs, arising out of any negligent act or omission by you. This indemnification shall remain effective indefinitely and shall not terminate with the expiration or termination of the training class.

     

    Course Questions: CampusMortgage®, NAMP®’s training division, allows Students to ask questions directly to the instructor for a period of one year from date of purchase, with a maximum of five (5) questions per class (not per module). The Student will receive only one (1) instructor response per question with no counter responses from the instructor. The Student will not be permitted to ask questions on any free classes provided to Student as part of a special offer or bundled package deal. The Student may not transfer any of the allotted (5) questions to another class or fellow Student. Only the registered Student may ask questions — not a colleague, family member, friend, fellow Student, etc. The Student’s question must pertain ONLY to the content in the course webinar and/or course materials -- not random mortgage-related questions. DUE TO LIABILITY REASONS, QUESTIONS MAY NOT PERTAIN TO A "LIVE" LOAN SCENARIO. When asking a question to a CampusMortgage® instructor, please keep in mind the instructor may not have the entire facts & background of the student’s question; therefore, we recommend the Student also utilize other resources such as FHA.gov, VA.gov, NMLS, CFPB, State Banking Department, etc. All answers provided to the student by a CampusMortgage® instructor are for informational purposes only and should not be taken as legal advice. By proceeding forward with asking a question to a CampusMortgage® instructor, the Student hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless CampusMortgage® and its employees, officers, directors, trustees, shareholders, affiliates, and agents from and against any and all liabilities, actions, claims, damages, costs, losses, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees & costs, arising out of (a) any negligent act or omission by the student or (b) any answer (information) given by a CampusMortgage® instructor pertaining to the Student’s question. This indemnification shall remain effective indefinitely and shall not terminate with the expiration or termination of the Student’s CampusMortgage® training class.

     

    1-Year Course Access: The student will have one year access to the webinars and course materials for each purchased training course, boot camp and NAMP®/NAMU® certification program. NOTE: the one year period will start from when the student first logs into the CampusMortgage® training portal — not from date of purchase.

     

    Certification Exam Format: You may re-take a NAMP® certification exam up to (3) times with a “cooling off” period of (14) calendar days between each failed exam. If you fail a NAMP® certification exam three times, you must wait 1 year before you can re-register for the same NAMP® certification -- the 1-year waiting period will start from the date of the third failed exam.

    Your Rights and Choices

    The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.

    Access to Specific Information – Data Portability Rights

    You have the right to request that NAMP disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we will disclose to you:

    • The categories of personal information we collected about you.

    • The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.

    • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.

    • The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.

    • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).

    • If we sold or disclosed your personal information for a business purpose, two separate lists disclosing:

      • sales, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient purchased; and

      • disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained.

    Deletion Request Rights

    You have the right to request that NAMP delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.

    We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

    1. Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.

    2. Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.

    3. Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.

    4. Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights or exercise another right provided for by law.

    5. Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).

    6. Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement if you previously provided informed consent.

    7. Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.

    8. Comply with a legal obligation.

    9. Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

    Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights

    To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by contacting us at contact@mortgageprocessor.org. You may also submit a privacy inquiry at contact@mortgageprocessor.org.

    Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.

    You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:

    • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.

    • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

    We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.

    Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

    Non-Discrimination

    We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights.  Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

    • Deny you goods or services

    • Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties. 

    • Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.

    • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

    However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels.  Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects.  Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time.

    11) EU Residents

    If you are a resident of the European Union, you have the following rights under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation. Any requests you make may take up to 30 days to process. Please be sure to provide your identifying information when making the request.
