How To Become A Loan Officer

So you are interested in the mortgage business and want to learn how to become a loan officer.

First, ask yourself these things:
  • Are you motivated?
  • Are you confident in your ability to learn the mortgage business?
  • Are you able to work effectively with others?
  • Are you comfortable networking and building relationships to further your business?
In learning how to become a loan officer, it is imperative that you have confidence in yourself. The mortgage business has it's own vocabulary and a very unique information set that will require you to study hard to ingest this material.

As you begin your career, you will want to become versed in the various aspects of successful mortgage loan officers and mortgage brokers. The training products here will help you to accomplish those goals.

Once you have mastered the basics, you may have the opportunity to advance up the career ladder with larger companies, while less knowledgable loan officers may end up with smaller companies and smaller support staff.


Loan Officer Licensing


Loan Officer Licensing

The initial part of learning how to become a loan officer is determining the loan officer licensing requirements in your state.

Loan officer licensing requirements vary by state. Currently, in many states, loan officer licensing when working for mortgage brokers is required, but not so if for loan officers who work in banks or credit unions.

But don't worry, national standardization is on the way and will soon be required in all states. This should ensure that loan officers are equally knowledgeable - and regulated - no matter where they are located.

But until that time, you'll need to view the licensing requirements for your state. You can do so by going to the Mortgage Lender Licensing Chart.

Once you've determined your state's requirements, the Mortgage Training Center can help you learn how to become a loan officer / help you find training for earning your loan office license. To search our mortgage training offerings:
