Maryland requires that individuals seeking licensure as an MLO are required to complete 20 hours of NMLS-approved education. This education must include 3 hours of federal law, 3 hours of ethics (which must include instruction on fraud, consumer protection, and fair lending issues), 2 hours of non-traditional mortgage lending, 7 hours of undefined education (referred to as electives), and 5 hours of Maryland-specific state law instruction.
