Connecticut (CT) Mortgage Loan Originator Prelicensing Education Requirements

New state-licensed MLOs are required to complete 20 hours of NMLS-approved education. This education must include 3 hours of Federal law, 3 hours of ethics (which shall include fraud, consumer protection, and fair lending issues), 2 hours of non-traditional mortgage lending, plus 12 hours of undefined education (referred to as electives). Number of hours is 3/3/2/12/ + 1hr of state law = 21

Effective 10/1/14 CT will require 1 hours of instruction on agency-specific law which may be satisfied by either taking a CT comprehensive course or a state-specific elective course.

Connecticut MLO Continuing Education Requirements

Every state-licensed MLO (in any approved status) is required to complete at least 8 hours of NMLS approved education annually beginning the year they are licensed (unless PE was completed in the same year). Annual CE education must include 3 hours of Federal law, 2 hours of ethics (which shall include fraud, consumer protection, and fair lending issues), and 2 hours of non-traditional mortgage lending, plus one (1) additional hour of education (referred to as an elective). Number of hours is 3/2/2/ + 1hr of state law = 8

Effective 1/1/15 CT will require 1 hours of instruction on CT law which may be satisfied by either taking a CT comprehensive course or a state-specific elective course.

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. MLO’s are advised not to retake pre-licensure education (PE) unless directed to by a State Regulator. PE education does not count towards meeting annual CE requirements.
