Strong victory for Connecticut’s state-regulated companies and MLOs:

Connecticut Adopts New SAFE MLO Test

Posted 7/23/2014

The Connecticut Department of Banking is adopting the National SAFE MLO Test Component with Uniform State Content, effective October 1, 2014. It is the 45th state agency that will no longer require a second state-specific test component to be taken by mortgage loan originators (MLOs) seeking licensure with its state agency. See Uniform State Test Implementation Information. Connecticut will require one (1) hour of state-specific pre-licensure education effective October 1, 2014 and will require one (1) hour of state-specific continuing education effective January 1, 2015. See CT Education Notice for more details.
