NMLS-Approved Continuing Education – SAFE Act’s Successive Year Rule

The SAFE Act requires Mortgage Loan Originators (MLO) to complete a minimum of 8 hours of NMLS-approved continuing education every year. An MLO may not take the same approved course in consecutive years per the SAFE Act’s Successive Year Rule.

An MLO must ensure not to register for the same courses completed in the prior year, so it is essential not to take a course with the same title or title keywords two years in a row. If an MLO completes the same course two years in a row, that completed continuing education will not be applied.

An MLO can review their NMLS Course Completion and Compliance Record details on the NMLS website.

Real Estate Institute ensures to write new courses every year, and information on our offerings is available here.
