New Jersey Mortgage Education Licensing Requirements

To become licensed as a mortgage loan officer in the state of New Jersey, you must complete 20 hours of national mortgage education courses. While some other states require additional hours of mortgage education, New Jersey does not have any additional requirements. Upon completing the 20 hours of national education requirements, you will need to pass the NMLS national exam to receive your NMLS License in New Jersey.

New license mortgage education, sometimes referred to as “pre-license education”, can be completed in one of three ways. Mortgage education courses can be completed in an Online-Instructor Led (OIL) format, in a live classroom setting, or via a live webinar. Most new loan officers elect to complete their education requirements through an online course bundle, like those shown above. However, Mortgage Educators also offers live webinars, and some live classes to best satisfy your needs. As you complete your hours of mortgage education requirements, Mortgage Educators will report all hours to the NMLS.

PE Expiration Policy in New Jersey

PE Expiration is a policy that was created by the NMLS Policy Committee that addresses situations in which an individual is required to retake 20 hours of pre-licensure education if they fail to acquire a valid mortgage license within three years from the last date of licensure as a mortgage loan originator. New Jersey is currently in pending enactment for the PE Expiration policy which means the policy is currently not enforced, but it will be rolled out soon.



Do I Need A New Jersey Mortgage Broker License or Loan Officer License?

Many individuals who are just entering the Jersey mortgage loan industry are under the impression that they need to obtain their New Jersey mortgage broker license. However, this isn’t the only option available and most people instead get their mortgage loan officer license. So, what’s the difference, and which should you get?

The terms “mortgage broker”, “loan originator” and “loan officer” are similar, but not synonymously. Essentially, loan officers are employed by a mortgage broker. As a loan officer, it will be your responsibility to provide new home buyers with a mortgage loan. If this sounds like your ideal future career, order the New Jersey mortgage education course bundle shown above!
