Mortgage Broker vs. Mortgage Loan Officer – What’s the difference?

Mortgage brokers and mortgage loan officers are often confused with each other. Because of this, most people looking to get a mortgage broker’s license are actually looking for a mortgage loan officer’s license. So what is 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?


Connecticut requires 20 hours of mortgage education, including a 1 hour Connecticut state law course. Mortgage Educators & Compliance offers a low price bundle of $239 that includes the 20 hour course and a comprehensive test prep course to help you score well on the NMLS national test (does not include the CT 1 hour)


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.
