About the 20 Hour FL SAFE Comprehensive Mortgage Loan Originator Course

PLEASE NOTE: From 8:30am-12:00pm on the first day of class, we cover the Florida Specific Laws and Rules as required by the Florida Office of Financial Regulation (OFR) effective January 1, 2017. 

Federal and state laws require that state-licensed mortgage loan originators complete NMLS-approved pre-licensure education at an NMLS-approved school. Larson Educational Services is a Florida-based NMLS-approved school - NMLS PROVIDER ID: 1400171 and NMLS COURSE ID: 6465.

Mortgage Loan Originators or MLOs are an integral part of the real estate transaction. As a licensed MLO, you will be working with mortgage lenders to obtain financing for potential home buyers and you will be paid based on the financed dollar amount. It is a challenging, but financially rewarding career choice.

All MLOs are regulated by the state in which they will originate loans and must be registered with the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System or NMLS. The curriculum development team at Larson Educational Services has developed this course to include the mandated hours and topics and to reflect the body of information required for an entry-level mortgage loan originator.

At the conclusion of this course, you will be armed with the knowledge to legally, safely and efficiently serve the needs of today's borrowers and lenders in real estate financing transactions. The course workbook combines detailed text, student notes, and sample questions. The course is updated as necessary to reflect ongoing changes within the mortgage industry. This course includes ALL exam preparation materials necessary to be prepared to pass the NMLS National Exam.
