How to Choose the Best LIVE 8-Hour NMLS Continuing Education Class
Choosing a LIVE class isn’t the easiest but with this nifty checklist, you’ll know just what to look for.
Where is the class held?
The first thing to check is the location of the class.
How far is it from you?
Can you reach it easily enough without having to take a cross-country flight?
Our LIVE classes are held in Bellflower at our fully equipped training center.
If you have an agency with 15 or more MLOs, we can come on-site and train them at your location! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss details.
Are there multiple dates?
Can you choose a date that works best for you?
Do they offer multiple options so you can choose one that works well for your schedule and is it possible for you to review all available dates and make an informed choice?
You can check out ALL our available dates right here on our Events calendar and book a date that’s best for you. Need ONLINE – click here.
Who are the instructors?
This one is super important.
Does your choice of training institute give you complete details about the credibility and qualifications of your instructors? Can you read real reviews by past students?
More importantly, can you review their teaching style via videos?
Are the classes engaging and interactive?
It’s important for LIVE classes to be engaging and interactive. You don’t want to be in a room for 8-hours with someone who bores you to death one monotonous word at a time, right?
Check with past students about the delivery style and if they enjoyed it while learning a ton too.
How to Get the Most Out of your CE Class
Once you’ve decided on your LIVE 8-hour CE class, it’s time for you to prep so you can get the most out of this class.
Here are tips that will go a long way in not just renewing your license but also your confidence in your skills.
Remember, you do need to take an exam after the CE class and pass it with a minimum score of 70%.
1.Rest up the night before
Partying the night before your LIVE classroom class isn’t the smartest thing to do and yet, you’ll be surprised at how many students show up sleep-deprived for their class.
Don’t be one of those students.
Instead, get an early night, sleep well and show up rested and ready to rock the class!
2. Show up before class starts
Make sure you know when to leave home so you can reach the class not just on time but before time.
It would be nice for you to reach a little early so you don’t get stressed should you not find parking or the right place!
Plus, it’s nice to show up early so you can chat with the instructors and your fellow students. Always helps to expand your professional network, right?
3. Stay hydrated
The class is an 8-hour class so you’ll be there for pretty much the whole day. Remember to take water and snacks with you. Going too long without water and snacks would cause your sugar levels to crash leading to brain fog and lethargy.
4. Ask clarifying questions
This is a class for you to brush up your knowledge on important, must-know MLO concepts, so don’t be afraid to raise your hand and ask questions.
Also, pay attention to the questions that others are asking. You may not have thought of them but knowing the answers to them can be super helpful!
5. Take notes
Finally and most importantly, take plenty of notes.
You will have knowledge checks and class discussion activities after each module but it’s essential you note down what you’re learning so you can review and recap information once the class is over AND pass your exam with a minimum of 70%.
