District of Columbia DC Mortgage Loan Originator MLO Pre-Licensure 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 9 hours of undefined education (referred to as electives) + 3 hours of DC law. Number of hours is 3/3/2/9/+ 3hrs of DC law = 20
DC has a requirement for 3 hours of instruction on state-specific law which may be satisfied by either taking a DC comprehensive course or a state-specific elective course.

DC Mortgage Loan Originator 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 DC-specific education (referred to as an elective). Number of hours is 3/2/2/+ 1hr of DC law = 8
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.

District of Columbia DC Mortgage Loan Originator Continuing Education CE

All those who complete Washington DC PE prior to the current calendar year, must take Washington District of Columbia, continuing education in the current year for license renewal.

DC CE Deadline

The deadline to complete CE is November 1, 2016. However, MLOs in DC are prohibited from submitting an application to renew their license if they have not completed CE. Since it may take as long as seven (7) days for a course provider to report a course completion into NMLS, MLOs are strongly encouraged not to wait until the last minute to try to complete CE or they may be prevented from submitting for renewal on time.
