Can you obtain an MLO license online in California?

Yes. The 20-hour SAFE course can be taken online as an instructor-led course that is taken over a 14-day period. The 2-hour CA state module is an online self-paced course that can be completed on your own schedule.

After completing the RealEstateU 22-hour coursework, you can apply online for an MLO license through the NMLS. However, you must go to an in-person center to submit your fingerprints and sit for the MLO SAFE ACT test.
