Register now for our 3 day live, classroom training in Atlanta, Georgia.
Our NMLS pre-licensing training is totally dedicated to assisting you to do only one thing, and that’s for you to pass the first time.
Learning in a classroom environment is vastly superior to learning online. Very few companies offer live classroom training because of the expense of maintaining the training facilities and they need to go after a larger group of people. The problem with online training is its not as effective versus a classroom… This a documented scholastic fact.
Scotsman’s Guide is the mortgage industry’s bible of authority and they reported years ago 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.
If English is your second language or you dislike being rushed through with online training, please consider attending our classroom training in Atlanta.
The NMLS national and combined UST ( Unified State Test) will probably be the most challenging test you’ll ever have to face. Your test is comprised of 125 multiple choice questions and the required passing score is 75%. The testing is administered by Prometrics with testing locations throughout the US.
We only offer this training once a month in Atlanta and we have a very high passing rate compared to online classes and schools offering two-day cram classes. Our future training dates are listed below. We only allow students to register for the current training date. You’ll have access to access for the next class after our current class has concluded.
We recognize that online training is very convenient but the advantages of that should be weighed out carefully before making a decision.
Is it easier to ask your questions by raising your hand and have your instructor answer your questions on the spot?
Is it easier to exactly formulate your question in your head; then type it into a chat box and then wait for the instructor to answer you?
Heck; by the time you finish typing your question the instructor is 2 pages ahead and you never heard a word while typing your question.
Not everyone passes their NMLS National test the first time.
Some companies like to brag about their student passing ratios. Some even boast they have a 90% or higher passing ratio.
Although it’s easy to boast about high passing averages is difficult to prove since the NMLS does not offer passing score statistics and probably never will.
The last time we saw any statistics from the NMLS was a statement that on a national average only about 64% of students pass their national test the first time.
Our average student passing score varies monthly from 83% to 91%
For our student who doesn’t pass the first time, we offer a free refresher course. If we have seats available you may return at no charge. There is an exception to this free refresher.
If you have waited over a year since your first class their is $150.00 fee; but in exchange, you’ll receive updated books and materials. Please understand Capstone has to pay an annual fee to the NMLS to approve our program materials.
All Capstone instructors have 30 or more years of industry experience and 5 or more years teaching this course.
Our training manual, homework assignments, and supplements are the most comprehensive available today. The author of all our materials is Kathy Lewis; who has 38 years of experience in the mortgage training industry and has published over 112 publications. Kathy is also the founder and President of Capstone.
You saw above in the NMLS test topics how much information you’ll be expected to know before your test.
