CE Webinars: NMLS requires continuing education webinar classes to be attended from a computer, laptop, or tablet. Cellular devices are not allowed. It is also required that your webcam be on and you be visible during class.

Regarding LATE CE:

We ask that MLOs please verify your need for LATE CE credits before completing a LATE CE course. You can find your education record on your NMLS account. This displays the MLO's entire education history and tracks federal and state education requirements by year. If an MLO does not have a CE requirement for a specific year, the record will display "No Federal CE Requirement" or "No State CE Requirement." If an MLO does not have a federal or state CE requirement, they should not complete a Late CE course. Additionally, if an MLO has a previous year CE requirement, it is only for the last year in which they were previously licensed with that agency. Note that some MLOs who have not been licensed for three or more years may be required to retake PE instead of completing Late CE (see the State-Specific Education Charts for details). Information about how to view the course completion record is available here: Course Completion Records
