Tennessee Requirement Detail for Mortgage Continuing Education

Hours Required by the State: 8 hours
  • 3 hours of federal law
  • 2 hours of ethics
  • 2 hours of non-traditional mortgage lending
  • 1 hour of electives

An MLO who has completed their pre-licensure education (PE) course requirements in the same year in which the license was approved, is not required to complete CE.

Course Duplication:

A licensee may not take the same CE course two years in a row.

Seat Time:

Seat time will be enforced and our online course delivery system manages this requirement.


Course Completion Reporting:

Mortgage course completions are reported to the Nationwide Multistate Licensing System and Registry (NMLS).  The NMLS recommends completing CE prior to the 12/31 deadline as licensees are unable to apply to renew their license if their CE is not complete.  NMLS recommended time frames:

SMART Renewal Deadline: CE course reported to NMLS by Friday, December 10 

At-Risk-to-Miss Renewal Deadline: Course reported to NMLS by Friday, December 17

Guaranteed to Miss Renewal Deadline: Course reported to NMLS on Friday, December 31

The CE Shop will report credits to the NMLS within 7 business days of course completion.
