Mortgage loan originators licensed under the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) Division of Real Estate are required to take one hour of Colorado regulation education every renewal period to keep their licenses in active status. This course includes the DRE mandated topics for the 2020 mortgage licensee renewal cycle.

This course begins with an overview of recent regulation updates to Colorado Revised Statutes (CRS) such as the new temporary authority license granted by the DRE and the responsibilities for those supervising temporary MLO licensees. The second module will explain Colorado advertisement regulations. The third module is a review of document and recordkeeping requirements for MLO licensees and mortgage companies, and the fourth and last module demonstrates a licensee's expectation of competency.
