Why are there additional Mortgage CE hours required in the state of Washington?
In addition to federal law, each state has the right to enact their own state specific laws and regulations, and this certainly applies within the mortgage licensing industry. While some states only require a few hours a year of additional mortgage CE hours, other states do not require any additional mortgage CE hours (above and beyond what the NMLS mandates).
Washington is one of the many states that has opted to enact their own layer of state specific laws and regulations within their local mortgage marketplace (in addition to the NMLS requirements), and these Washington state specific laws and regulations also require a yearly review similar to the yearly review courses required by the NMLS for mortgage licensing renewals.
As with most states that choose to enact their own laws within the mortgage industry, Washington’s state specific requirements for mortgage licensing are strictly designed to further avoid fraud, foster stronger ethics, and overall provide yet another layer of protection for Washington residents.
