NMLS to Begin Accepting Applications for Late CE Courses November 1


NMLS will soon begin accepting course applications to populate the Late CE Course Catalog for 2010-2012. As a reminder, Late CE courses are those courses that an MLO is required to complete to make-up a previous year’s CE requirement.   As has been the case in the past, courses considered for the Late CE catalog are required to be a duplicate of a course that has been approved on or before October 31, 2012. Courses in the Late CE course have a specific course offering set-up so that credit is retroactively applied to a previous year.

Details about Late CE courses and the process for submitting a course may be found in the Notice Regarding Intention to Make Available “Late CE” Continuing Education Courses in the NMLS Master Course Catalog which is posted in the course provider section of the NMLS Resource Center under the section Notices and Examples.  Course providers interested in offering Late CE courses will be able to submit them for approval between November 1 and November 30, 2012.  If you have any questions about the process, please email to Jessica Ayton (JAyton@CSBS.org).

Updated Test Content Outline for NH Posted


The content outline for the NH state-component of the SAFE MLO test has been updated and is available in the NMLS Resource Center.   In addition to showing weighted content domains, the test outline also contains a reference list which may be used by MLOs to help prepare for the test.  The test outline for NH also has an effective date stamp posted on it (see the Jan 10 posting of the Newsletter for more information on effective date stamping).  The test content outlines may be found on the testing page of the NMLS Resource Center at: http://mortgage.nationwidelicensingsystem.org/profreq/testing/Pages/TestContentOutline.aspx

State-Specific Education Chart Updated


NMLS has posted an update to the State-Specific Education Chart.  The most current document is dated September 5, 2012 and includes a change to Oregon’s CE requirement.  Oregon now requires MLOs to compete CE in the same year in which they are licensed.  The State-Specific Education Chart is available in the course provider section of the NMLS Resource Center under the header “Important Links for Course Providers.”

Notice Regarding How to Include Dodd-Frank Act Information in Course Content


NMLS has posted a notice providing guidance about how to include accurate information on the Dodd-Frank Act in course material given that many of the rules associated with implementing the law are still being written. The intent is to ensure providers and MLOs have an understanding of what aspects of the law are currently in effect, and what is pending (and therefor still subject to interpretation by the respective agency responsible for rule making). Ultimately, the goal of this notice is to ensure course providers, when providing instruction on Dodd-Frank, impress upon MLOs the difference between “fact and speculation” about current and pending changes of mortgage lending laws.  The notice is posted in the course provider page of the NMLS Resource Center under section “Administrative Notices.”

NMLS Transitioning to One Test Delivery Vendor


The course provider community is advised that effective January 1, 2013, NMLS will use Prometric as the sole test delivery vendor. Pearson VUE will no longer administer the NMLS SAFE MLO Test Components after December 31, 2012. MLOs who have any appointments scheduled with Pearson VUE up to and including December 31, 2012 will be honored and will not be affected.

Course providers who are offer information to MLOs about how to pay for and schedule a test appointment are advised to update their documentation accordingly.
