District of Columbia PE
The District of Columbia states that individuals who are 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, 9 hours of undefined education (referred to as electives), and 3 hours of District of Columbia-specific state law instruction.

As mentioned, DC has a 3-hour DC-specific pre-licensing education course requirement. Please view our DC PE course options below.
Continuing Education Requirements
If you are already a licensed MLO in the state of District of Columbia 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.
