How to Renew Your Arizona Mortgage Loan Originator (MLO) License

Education Requirements

The Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act of 2008 (SAFE Act) requires that state-licensed mortgage loan originators (MLOs) complete annual continuing education. In order to meet continuing education requirements state-licensed MLOs must complete 8 hours of NMLS approved education which include the following:

For annual continuing education, the SAFE Act requires state-licensed MLOs to complete:

  1. Three hours of Federal law and regulations;
    b. Two hours of ethics that shall include instruction on fraud, consumer protection, and fair lending issues;
    c. Two hours of training related to lending standards for the nontraditional mortgage product market; and
    d. One hour of undefined instruction on mortgage origination.

While the SAFE Act requires NMLS to approve pre-licensure and continuing education courses, it is individual state law that compels mortgage loan originators to take the pre-licensure and continuing education as a requirement for state licensure. Many state agencies require that pre-licensure education be complete prior to submitting an application through NMLS.  NMLS provides information concerning education requirements and administers the process for completing it, but state-licensed MLO’s should refer to their state agencies regarding the specific details associated with meeting the education requirements.

> The SAFE Act’s Successive Year Rule requires MLOs to complete eight (8) hours of CE every year and mandates that an MLO may not take the same course two years in a row.
