California MLO general requirements:

To become a California mortgage loan originator you be at least eighteen years old and provide a clean criminal history record to the NMLS. You must also pass a credit check and demonstrate good character and financial responsibility. If you satisfy the general requirements you can then submit a MLO licensee endorsement application to the NMLS through your employer.

Job details for California MLO:
California mortgage loan originators review and evaluate property loan applications for individuals and companies to see if they qualify for the loan. Through a process called underwriting, they determine property worth and whether or not an applicant will receive the loan.

Job market outlook
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS)* Employment of loan officers is projected to grow 11 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations. Economic growth will lead to more demand for loan officers, as both businesses and individuals seek credit to finance commercial investment and personal expenditure. Loan officers will be needed to evaluate the creditworthiness of applicants, and determine the likelihood that loans will be paid back in full and on time.

What is the median pay?
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS)* the median wage in 2017 for loan officers was $64,660 a year. This means half of all MLOs made more than this and half made less. The top 10 percent of loan officers made over $135,590 a year.

What are the CE requirements for a California MLO?
After you’ve completed your 20 hours of California pre-license education, each year after, you will need to complete an additional 8 hours of continuing education to keep your mortgage loan officer license or mortgage Broker license active.

What does SAFE Act mean?
SAFE stands for “Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act.” It provides better communication between regulators and MLO’s to help protect consumers and prevent fraud.

What to expect on the National MLO examination?
You will be required to take and pass the National Test Component with Uniform State Content, which meets state-specific test requirements for state agencies that have adopted the UST. The test includes 125 questions, with 190 minutes allowed to complete. The test fee is $110.
