Are you planning to become a licensed Mortgage Loan Originator? If so, you must pass the National Test. Make no mistake, it is a tough exam.

Our test preparation program has been updated to include TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure Rule (TRID), New HUD Rules, and the New Borrowers Home Loan Tool Kit. The Mastery Level Course (NMLS Exam Prep II) – includes ALL of the items in the Basic Level Course, in addition to the items listed below.


Every mortgage professional who originates loans for a non-Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.-insured entity must be licensed. Being licensed means having to pass the National Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS) pre-licensing exam.

According to the NMLS website, between July 30, 2009, and this past November 30, 2018 the first time “pass” rate of the national loan originator exam has fallen to 55 percent. That means that almost 45% of test-takers are failing the exam! This is an indication that the test is not too easy! We have a 92% pass rate based on students that have taken our Exam Prep Cram Course.

About the exam

The exam is relatively standard. It includes 120 computer-generated, multiple-choice questions that must be answered within three hours.

In order to pass the exam, originators must achieve a passing score of 75 percent or better. If you fail, you must wait 30 days to retake the exam. If you fail 3 times – you must wait six (6) month before your allowed to retake the exam.

Can your business afford to be sidelined for that long?

This is an online prep courses to prepare students to take the SAFE Mortgage Loan Originator Test – National Component with Uniform State Test.

Our online course includes over 10 hours of online content with 30 instructional videos and 15 practice exams modeled after the content of the NMLS Exam.

“Thank you Artricia Woods. After taking the exam twice and failing with previous schools, I only had one more shot before having to wait 6 months.

I listened to Artricia, went to the live crash course, studied the flash cards and finally passed the exam!! Highly recommended!!! Don’t waste your time and money on other training schools!”

– Tomer Y., Los Angeles, CA

“Took a 20 hour class online for my MLO license and failed miserably.

Found the live crash course that Artricia Woods teaches and it saved me. Taught in way that makes it easy to remember and learn key terms and laws.

If I would have taken the live 20 hour course she teaches along with the crash I would have aced the test.”

– Ronald T., Adelanto, CA

“So excited to share with everyone that I passed! I joined the crash course one week before my Exam, Artricia refreshed all the important material that helped us to remember… you MUST join the crash course, it’s really helpful!

I practiced all the Affinity Online Exams (10 Mop exam) and then I printed all out and studied all the answers again and again, at the real exam, of course, you must read and understand the questions clearly before you check the answer. Thank God, I made it! It’s not an easy exam. Highly recommend this school/crash course to you! Once again, thank you Artricia!”

– Money T., Monterey Park, CA

more from our students:

“Thanks to Artricia and her crash course with Affinity Mortgage I passed my mortgage licensing test on my first try! I used a different company for my 20 hour course but still didn’t understand anything.

After I took Artricia’s course everything clicked and I’m a horrible test taker. She explains everything in a way that anyone can understand. Thanks again Artricia!”

Truc. D., Abbeville, LA

“Thank you Artricia! I followed your steps and studied all the material you sent me after completing your NMLS Crash Course and I just passed my test today on my first attempt with 90%!

Will definitely be recommending your class to anyone looking to get their NMLS State license.”
