Important Compliance Update

1 Hour Ethics CE Credit Now Required for All Escrow Officers

Escrow officers renewing their licenses must now have 1 hour of ethics continuing education credit to comply with the new TDI requirements.

Effective with the new TDI rule changes is a requirement that of the 10 hours of continuing education escrow officers must complete every two years, 1 hour must be on ethics. Therefore, at their next license renewal, all escrow officers will be required to have completed this new continuing education component.
