In-Course Questions

What is BioSig?


BioSig is mandated for all online continuing education courses for all states. Please make sure that all your information in your profile is up to date and matches your NMLS profile (including first, middle, and last name).
We recommend writing down your BioSig password as you will need to draw it each time you log into your course. Students are not required to do BioSig for every module (the number of check-ins depends on number of course hours).

How do I reset my BioSig password?


If you need a password reset, fail your BioSig three times. A password reset code will be sent to your e-mail. You will need to input this 5-digit pin to create a new password.

Why do course modules contain timers?


Making sure a student remains engaged with the content for the duration of any pre-licensing or continuing education course is a requirement of the SAFE Act. As such, NMLS requires that timers be integrated to ensure that student engagement takes place.
