To license in a state there may be additional state law PE courses ranging from 1 hour to 5 hours above the 20 hour Federal education requirement. These courses are purchased separately and must be completed prior to license approval.
If you’re already licensed and seeking licensure in a state with an additional PE requirement you only need to complete the PE course for that state prior to applying for your license as long as your current license is active. Depending on when you took your 20 hour course, some states do have a 3 year requirement and may require you to retake the 20 hr course before obtaining a state license.
Federal 20 hour PE is required for all new mortgage loan originators. In some cases the NMLS may require an MLO to re-take the 20 hour course. If you’re seeking licensure in an additional state, or you’ve had a gap in licensure, give us a call to discuss your particular requirements with our of our education specialists!
