Mortgage Broker vs. Mortgage Loan Officer: What's the Difference?

Mortgage broker licenses are commonly confused with the more common loan officer license. While the terms mortgage broker, loan officer, and mortgage loan originator are similar, they aren’t synonymous. So what’s the difference?

 

Generally speaking, a mortgage broker is a company that employs mortgage loan officers. The loan officers are employed by the broker to originate loans for home-buyers when they are looking for a loan for their mortgage.

 

So what kind of courses do I need to do to get started on my license?

South Carolina requires 20 hours of mortgage education, and a 3 hour South Carolina state law course. Mortgage Educators & Compliance offers the 20 hour, the 3 hour, and test prep all in a low price bundle of $269. The test prep course is given to help you score well on the NMLS national test.

 

New mortgage license education, or "pre-license education" must be completed in either a live classroom or online instructor-led format. Mortgage Educators & Compliance provides these courses weekly in an Online Instructor-Led (OIL) format. These courses are presented by instructors via pre-recorded video with slideshow presentations. Courses are broken up into chapters comprised of 5 minute sections and quizzes that make up the overall content. At the end of the course, students should expect a short test to check for comprehension. All hours are reported to the NMLS upon completion by Mortgage Educators & Compliance.
