New Course Renewal Application Form and Requirement for Online Course Access


A new Course Renewal Application Form has been posted in the NMLS Resource Center and is now available for use.  The new form is shorter, in MS Word format, and is very similar to the current course approval form.  In addition, effective August 1 and as part of the course renewal process, NMLS will require one open and one closed access for both online instructor-led (OIL) and online self-study (OSS) courses.  Please also provide the site URL and any security question/answer that may be required to access the course.  As part of the course renewal process, NMLS will not only continue to very that content is current, but we’ll also be looking at select courses to verify that content-to-time ratios are being maintained and that the course is configured in accordance with the functional specification.

In preparing their courses for renewal, providers are encouraged to make use of the resources available in the Course Provider section of the NMLS Resource Center, particularly the model course syllabus.  Questions concerning the new renewal form may be directed to Jessica Ayton at jayton@csbs.org.
