Colorado Mortgage License Renewal Courses

Continuing Education for Brokers & Mortgage Loan Originators

Time to Renew your Colorado Mortgage Loan Originator License?

VanEd and our partner (Provider ID 1400051) have combined to provide all the courses needed to renew your Colorado Mortgage Loan Originator license and comply with the Colorado SAFE Mortgage License Act.

The SAFE Act requires a licensed Colorado MLO to complete minimum annual continuing education requirements as follows:

  • 8 hours of NMLS approved education annually beginning the year they are licensed (unless PE was completed in the same year).
  • MLOs are advised that to comply with the SAFE Act’s “successive years” rule, they may not take the same CE course two years in a row. MLO’s are advised not to retake pre-licensure education (PE) unless directed to by a State Regulator. PE education does not count towards meeting annual CE requirements.
  • The deadline to complete CE is December 31. However, MLOs in Colorado are prohibited from submitting an application to renew their license if they have not completed CE. Since it may take as long as seven (7) days for a course provider to report a course completion into NMLS, MLOs are strongly encouraged not to wait until the last minute to try to complete CE or they may be prevented from submitting for renewal on time.
