§ 1008.107 Minimum annual license renewal requirements.
(a) For an individual to be eligible to renew a loan originator license as required under § 1008.103(f), a state must require the individual:
(1) To continue to meet the minimum standards for license issuance provided in § 1008.105; and
(2) To satisfy annual continuing education requirements, which must include at least 8 hours of education approved by the NMLSR. The 8 hours of annual continuing education must include at least:
(i) 3 hours of Federal law and regulations;
(ii) 2 hours of ethics (including instruction on fraud, consumer protection, and fair lending issues); and
(iii) 2 hours of training related to lending standards for the nontraditional mortgage product marketplace.
(b) A state must provide that a state-licensed loan originator may only receive credit for a continuing education course in the year in which the course is taken, and that a state-licensed loan originator may not apply credits for education courses taken in one year to meet the continuing education requirements of subsequent years. A state must provide that an individual may not meet the annual requirements for continuing education by taking an approved course more than one time in the same year or in successive years.
(c) An individual who is an instructor of an approved continuing education course may receive credit for the individual's own annual continuing education requirement at the rate of 2 hours credit for every one hour taught.
