NMLS approved courses.

Our program has been rigorously reviewed, approved, and authorized for continuing education credit by the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS). Our 9-hour Washington MLO Continuing Education course package includes the required 8 hours of federal law, ethics, nontraditional mortgages, an elective, and 1 hour of Washington state-specific course content.

The Washington-specific section covers the acts and practices that Washington mortgage licensees are prohibited from participating in as well as the actions that a licensee is allowed to participate in.

Our courses at OnlineEd are written by OnlineEd. Because of this, we save on overhead licensing costs and can pass those savings on to you.

Available in convenient course packages.

Our mortgage continuing education courses are available in several convenient packages. You can choose the 8-hour Originator Essentials course needed to meet the NMLS 8-hour course guidelines for continuing education credit, or the 1-hour Washington Prohibited Conduct and Permitted Acts course as a stand-alone for those who have already completed 8 hours of NMLS continuing education and only need to fulfill the 1-hour WA requirement. Both courses can also be bundled together in our 9-hour Washington MLO Continuing Education package.

MLOs are required to take a minimum of 8 hours of continuing education every year in Federal Laws and Regulations, Ethics, non-traditional mortgage training, and mortgage origination. In addition, Washington requires a 1-hour Prohibited Conduct and Permitted Acts course.

The SAFE Act requires licensed Mortgage Loan Originators to take a minimum of 8 hours of continuing education every year. The continuing education credit hours must be in the following categories:

  • 3 hours of Federal Laws and Regulations
  • 2 hours of Ethic topics covering fraud, fair lending, and consumer protection issues
  • 2 hours of non-traditional mortgage training
  • 1 hour of electives

In Washington, MLOs are required to take 9 hours of continuing education credits, which includes 1 hour of WA-specific course content. If you are licensed in other states, please check with each state to learn if you need to take additional credit hours. See this handy PDF for details.

Our 9-hour Washington MLO Continuing Education package covers all of the courses required for continuing education in Washington.
