Montana states that individuals seeking licensure as an MLO are required to complete 20 hours of NMLS-approved education. This education must include 3 hours of federal law, 3 hours of ethics (which must include instruction on fraud, consumer protection, and fair lending issues), 2 hours of non-traditional mortgage lending, 10 hours of undefined education (referred to as electives), and 2 hours of Montana-specific state law instruction.

As mentioned, Montana has a 2-hour state specific pre-licensing education course requirement. Please view our Montana PE course options below.
Continuing Education Requirements
If you are already a licensed MLO in Montana, you don't need to take PE (unless you have been instructed by the NMLS to do so). You do need to complete at least 8 hours of NMLS-approved continuing education every year following the completion of your PE requirements.
