If you’re already a licensed MLO you’ll be required to complete a minimum of 8 hours of continuing education annually. Many states have their own CE requirements in addition to the Federal 8 hour requirement.

For those only licensed in a single state that has at least a 1 hour CE requirement, you may elect to take the 7 hour Federal CE course plus your state CE course. 

A few states have exceptions to the above, or have requirements beyond the federal and state CE hours.

New York has an 11 hour CE requirement which must include the 8 hour version of the Federal CE course plus the 3 hour state course.

New Jersey has a 12 hour CE requirement which must include 2 hours of NJ CE, at least 2 hours of electives ( which may be other state CE courses or Federal electives), plus the Federal CE course.
