The State-Specific Education Requirements Chart (dated October 12, 2011) lists the education requirements for every mortgage licensing agency.  The charts are available in the NMLS Resource Center .

Please note that a majority of states are taking advantage of NMLS functionality which prevents an MLO from submitting for renewal until they have completed their annual CE.  So while NMLS policies allow for up to seven (7) calendar days from the course end date to report course completions, you can avoid increasing your call volume by credit banking as soon as possible.  Please also remember to issue always issue a course completion certificate (this is an NMLS requirement for all classroom formats).
