20 Hour NMLS Pre-Licensing Training For New Loan Originators


If calling after business hours please leave your contact # or e-mail address with our live answering service.

Our staff will contact you the next morning to answer your questions and assist you in  registering for this training.

NMLS requires as a precondition of being licensed as a loan originator, that all individuals at a minimum take an approved 20 hour course of instruction and then pass a combined test referred to as the national test and the Unified State Test.  Capstone is one of the few training institutes in the United Sates that offers this training in a live classroom environment with you and your instructor physically in the same classroom.

Next Training After March 3-4-5th Will Be April 7-8-9th

Be leary of schools advertising unrealistic passing rates and the lowest prices

If this training was easy everyone would be passing. Don’t fail your test and pay again for refreshing training plus the cost of retesting.

Scotsman’s Guide is reporting that the best way to prepare for the National test & Unified State test is not with online training but by sitting in a real classroom with your instructor in front of you. Online training works well for some people , but for many others not so well.  If you weren’t a brainiac high tech computer person back in school please consider attending our classroom training in Atlanta GA.

Not every person passes their test the first time. GOOD News! Capstone is the only school that allows you to retake the class again free.

We limit our class size to 25 students so register early.

Why Choose Capstone Institute’s Classroom Training In Atlanta, Georgia

If you’re just starting your career in the mortgage industry or returning, you really need to understand there’s a reason why only about 63% of people taking the National and UST test pass. The NMLS national test is extremely tough and previous mortgage experience really doesn’t give you much of an edge.

Many of our students have never been in any type of banking job before and their passing rate with our instruction and materials are equal to experienced loan originators who are re-entering the mortgage business.

Nothing works better statistically than a live class, with your instructor in front of you, who has the time to take your questions and answer them on the spot.  In our 3 day training format we have the time to allow our students to ask lots of questions, and take lots of practice tests.
