Certified Mortgage Lender
What is a Certified Mortgage Lender?

The Certified Mortgage Lender (CML) designation is a certification program that was created by CMLA to demonstrate to consumers and business associates a high level of individual competence, expertise, as well as a dedication to mortgage lending as your chosen career. The CML designation may be earned through a combination of industry experience, education and training, licensing and other credentialing, and participation in industry associations. 

We encourage all of our members to apply for and maintain their CMLs!

**Please visit the CML page on our website to review the requirements to apply for and renew your CML.
