Pre-licensing Requirements

West Virginia requires that individuals seeking licensure as an MLO are required to complete 24hours 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, 12 hours of undefined education (referred to as electives), and 4 hours of West Virginia-specific state law instruction.

As mentioned, West Virginia has a 4-hour state specific pre-licensing education course requirement. Please view our West Virginia PE course options below.
