Approved NMLS Provider

In an effort to protect the health and wellness of participants, facilitators and support staff in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, AMLA has cancelled SAFE Act classroom training for the remaining of the year. We are excited that Genworth and Mary Kay Scully have already committed to be here for our training in 2021. AMLA and Genworth have had a wonderful partnership with our SAFE Act training classes since 2011, and we look forward to continuing it for many years.

For 2020………AMLA has arranged with Hondros Education Group a discounted rate for AMLA’s loan originators to take their 8 hours of required CE online. The class is normally $128.00, but for AMLA members it is $78.00. This fee includes uploading fees to NMLS. We encourage loan officers to take this class, so that next year when we once again offer the classroom format, we don’t have to worry about duplication of material from another school. NMLS requires that from year to year, material must be new. It would be impossible for AMLA to track whether material from another school might duplicate material that Hondros gives us in 2021.

 Feel free to call Hondros directly at 800.282.7972 with questions or the AMLA office at 623.433.8940.

 We know that an online class is not the first choice for many of you, but your safety is our most important concern. Thank you for your understanding and continued participation in AMLA events. Please let us know how if there is anything we can do to help during these challenging times, and please stay safe.
