Can the same continuing education course be taken two years in a row?

If I am employed at a Commercial Bank, do I need to take continuing education?
You do not have to take continuing education courses if you work for an insured depository organization such as those regulated by FDIC, NCUA etc. You still can and may want to take the relevant PE and CE courses in the event that you change employment and work for a state-licensed lender or broker.
Am I allowed to carryover CE hours from one year to the next?
No. CE hours are not able to be carried over to the next renewal cycle.
How do I contact the NMLS if I have questions?

Does LearnMortgage.com submit my hours?
All completed hours must be “banked” with the NMLS. The Association of Mortgage Educators (learnmortgage.com) will bank your continuing education hours for you within seven (7) days of you finishing your online course. LearnMortgage.com will pay the NMLS-mandated $1.50 per credit hour to bank your credit hours.
