Colorado Mortgage Loan Officer License Requirements

As a result of the Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act (SAFE Act) of 2008, mortgage loan originators are required to complete a set list of requirements of both education and application in order to obtain a license to operate in their state. Below is a list of the requirements set forth by the SAFE Act and the state of Colorado for new loan officers applying for mortgage licenses:

Colorado New Mortgage License Education Requirements

New Colorado state-licensed Mortgage Loan Originators are required to complete a 20 hour SAFE pre-licensure education course that includes:


  • 3 hours of Federal law and regulations
  • 3 hours of ethics, fraud, consumer protection, and fair lending issues
  • 2 hours of non-traditional mortgage lending
  • 12 hours of undefined instruction (electives)
  • 2 hours of Colorado state law education

New Mortgage License Education does not count towards annual CE credits. MLO's are also advised to not retake any 20 hour new license education course unless otherwise directed by a state regulator.

Mortgage Loan Originators are required to complete 8 hours of Continuing Education which include:


  • 3 hours of Federal Law
  • 2 hours of ethics
  • 2 hours of non-traditional mortgage lending

Remember to take into account the "successive years" rule, which prohibits loan officers from taking the same CE course two years in a row. Mortgage Educators changes its continuing education course annually to ensure no issues with the "successive years" rule.
