 Important Notice About CE Courses and the SAFE ACT’S “Sucessive Years” Rule

The Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act of 2008 (SAFE Act) requires that state-licensed mortgage loan originators (MLOs) complete 8 hours of NMLS approved continuing education (CE) annually.  The SAFE Act also stipulates that a state-licensed MLO “may not take the same approved course in the same or successive years to meet the annual requirements for continuing education.”  NMLS has interpreted the term “successive years” to mean two years in a row. 

To ensure compliance with this provision of the SAFE Act, courses that contain the same course content are considered the same course and cannot be taken two years in a row by an MLO.

Pay Attention!  Taking the same course two years in a row will result in CE not being counted for license renewal which could result in your license being suspended!

Action for MLO to be in Compliance with the SAFE Act “Successive Year” Rule:

Before registering for a course, check the course description to see if the course uses licensed content or shares content with another course.  If it does, you may not take a course using the same content two years in a row. Courses using licensed content or sharing content with another course use the same course title or specific key words which are stated at the beginning of the course description. Do not take a course with the same title or title keywords two years in a row.
