Can you become a mortgage loan officer with a bad credit? How much is the salary for a newby?

Hubby wants to change career and try to be a mortgage loan officer.  Has been doing finance/accounting for 20 years.  His credit is pretty bad, and I think they check his credit as part of the licensing process, right?  Can he become a loan officer with a bad credit?

Also, what is the amount he will be making as a brand new loan officer?  He has been making 6 figure income, but it's hard for us financially if he has to take a huge paycut.  Thank you for your help.

    His credit will be checked. Anyone employed in the banking industry is considered to be high risk if their credit is bad.  A new loan officer will not make a six figure salary.  Depending on where you live, he might be lucky to make 60k his first year.

    I cannot imagine any occupation where they spend to check credit not caring about bad credit.  Or are you saying the state checks it?

    Probably pretty tough.  Hard to take financial advice from someone who can't keep their own financial life straight.
