We take a new approach to Pre-Licensing education. We use the latest 21st-century e-learning techniques, so our courses educate, engage and entertain.  The 20-Hour Pre-Licensing course is delivered by introducing information in the same way or order that an LO would originate a loan.  We have all of the state-specific PE courses, so you can complete all your Pre-Licensing requirements in one place. Discover the difference at Diehl Mortgage Training and Compliance.

Take the 20-hour Course in One of 2 Great Formats!

Interactive Live Stream

Our Interactive Live Stream is a great option for those who like the live classroom experience without travel and can be accessed from any computer with a fast, steady internet connection. Please 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-expert instructors know the mortgage business inside and out. Full participation in the chat and quizzes are required through the control panel. You will get the benefit of an expert leading you through subject matter, explaining concepts in a way that is easy to understand and answer any questions throughout the class. This option is generally offered twice a month and consists of three 7-hour Live Streams.

Online Instructor Led

This format is perfect for the person who needs more flexibility and is offered in a 5-day format (Monday through Friday) or 10-day format. 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. 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 Live Stream Session led by an industry expert to help you be fully prepared.

What's on the SAFE MLO Test?

At Diehl, we know your time is valuable. You deserve the best tools to complete the required Pre-Licensing education and to prepare for and pass the SAFE Mortgage Loan Originator Test. The Test is comprised of 5 key subject areas, and we designed our course with those key subject areas in mind, with our course manual written around these topics. We used the NMLS Test Content Outline to write our courses to ensure that we teach you the right information. The quizzes, tests and test prep are all written based on the NMLS Test Content Outline, ensuring that you will be prepared to pass the SAFE Mortgage Loan Originator Test on your first try.

New state-licensed MLOs are required to complete 20 hours of NMLS-approved pre-licensing courses. This education must include 3 hours of federal law, 3 hours of ethics (which shall consist of fraud, consumer protection, and fair lending issues), 2 hours of nontraditional mortgage lending, plus 12 hours of undefined education (referred to as electives). These add up to the 20-Hour Pre-Licensing requirement.
