I want to get a license to become a Mortgage Loan Originator ("Loan Officer")
To become a licensed Mortgage Loan Originator, your first step is to complete a 20-hour NMLS-approved pre-licensing class. Host Group offers this course as a live class or as an online class. After you complete the class, there are a number of other requirements that must be met before you receive your license; because these requirements are constantly changing, we recommend you visit the website for the NMLS website for the most update rules.
I want to get my Real Estate Salesperson License and have never taken a class before
You need to take the 40-hour Real Estate Salesperson Pre-Licensing course. This class is offered live in our Boston office a few times a month. Learn more about the course, including topics covered, prices, and schedules. You can also visit the website for the Board of Registration for Real Estate Brokers and Salespersons to learn more about the state requirements.
I'm a licensed Mortgage Loan Originator and need to complete my annual Continuing Education requirement
All Mortgage Loan Originators in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts need to complete 8 hours of Continuing Education every year. Host Group offers this 8-hour course as a live class that includes 1 hour of MA-specific content, as well as an online class that does not include the required MA-specific content.

I'm a licensed Real Estate Salesperson and now want to become a Real Estate Broker
If you've been actively licensed as a Real Estate Salesperson and have been associated with a Real Estate Broker for at least THREE years, you should take our 40-hour Real Estate Broker Pre-Licensing course. Learn more about the course, including prices and schedules. You can also visit the website for the Board of Registration for Real Estate Brokers and Salespersons to learn more about the state requirements.
I'm already a licensed Real Estate Salesperson or Real Estate Broker, but I need to complete Continuing Education so I can keep my license
Real estate brokers and salespersons in Massachusetts need to complete 12 hours of continuing education every two years. If you don't complete the full 12 hours before your birthday (every other year), your license will expire.
