Live Interactive Webinar

Our live webinar format (or classroom equivalent) is a great option for those who like live presentations without the travel and can be accessed from any computer with a fast and steady internet connection. Note that currently the NMLS does not allow tablets or phones for live webinar delivery. Those who are skeptical of a webinar format are typically pleasantly surprised!  Our industry-experienced instructors know the mortgage business and regulations.  Full participation through the chat and quizzes is required through the control panel. You will get the benefit of an expert leading you through subject matter, explaining concepts in an "easy to understand"  way and answering any questions throughout the class.

This option is generally offered twice a month and consists of three 7-hour webinars. The first session of the month is from 10am to 5pm EASTERN Standard Time and the second session is from 11am to 6pm EST(Please make time adjustments based on your time zone.

Online Instructor Led

This format is perfect for the person who needs the most flexibility and is offered in a 5-day format (Monday through Friday). Students have online access to the course day or night and complete activities by applying the course information they learned when answering questions and case studies. Activities are reviewed and graded by a live instructor once they are completed. The key to success is making sure lessons and activities delivered each day are completed which requires a time commitment of approximately 4-5 hours per day. Anyone unable to complete the course within the timeframe would be required to retake the 20-hour course. We allow one free reschedule if a person is unable to take their class as it was initially scheduled. 

Purchasing of this course also offers you access to a weekly Test Prep Webinar Session led by an industry expert to help you be fully prepared.

The slides and e-learning course were developed from the same NMLS test content outline. The quizzes, tests and test prep all map back to the same content.
