Our California NMLS courses at OnlineEd are written by OnlineEd. Because of this, we save on overhead licensing costs and can pass those savings on to you.

MLOs are required to take a minimum of 8 hours of continuing education every year in Federal Laws and Regulations, Ethics, non-traditional mortgage training, and mortgage origination. Our California courses are available both for MLO and for Real Estate continuing education, and we also offer the required course for those licensed by the DBO.
The SAFE Act requires licensed Mortgage Loan Originators to take a minimum of 8 hours of continuing education every year. Additionally, there are many Mortgage Loan Originators in California who are also real estate licensees, so some of our course packages are approved by the California Department of Real Estate to satisfy continuing education requirements for California real estate agents.
