NMLS-Approved Mortgage Continuing education

Renew your MLO license and fulfill all NMLS continuing education requirements needed to maintain your mortgage loan officer license.

PA-specific CE requirements

PA-licensed MLOs are required to complete 8 hours of NMLS-approved mortgage education annually beginning the year they are licensed (unless PE was completed in the same year). This includes:

  • 3 hours of federal law
  • 2 hours of ethics
  • 2 hours of non-traditional mortgage lending
  • 1 hour of Pennsylvania state-specific education

MLOs are advised that to comply with the SAFE Act’s “successive years” rule, they may not take the same CE course two years in a row.
