Iowa Continuing Education Requirements:
Iowa Requirement Detail for Mortgage Continuing Education
Hours Required by the State: 8 hours
- 3 hours of federal law
- 2 hours of ethics
- 2 hours of non-traditional mortgage lending
- 1 hour of electives
An MLO who has completed their pre-licensure education (PE) course requirements in the same year in which the license was approved, is not required to complete CE.
A licensee may not take the same CE course two years in a row.
Seat time will be enforced and our online course delivery system manages this requirement.
NMLS provider #1405076
Course Completion Reporting:
Mortgage course completions are reported to the Nationwide Multistate Licensing System and Registry (NMLS).
The NMLS recommends completing CE prior to the deadline as licensees are unable to apply to renew their license if their CE is not complete.
The CE Shop will report credits to the NMLS within 7 business days of course completion.
