Our quizzes and tests simulate the NMLS testing format where one question is available at a time. Correct answers have attached comments to help reinforce your learning. Once a test is completed and passed, it is instantly graded based on the NMLS 5 testing categories. Test results are displayed to help student gauge their performance in each testing area. If a student fails a test, it is immediately available for a retake.


Quizzes are available for viewing after passing; however, tests are not available once you receive a passing score. Each test is available for printing, studying, and reviewing.


After successfully completing a course, you can return to your account dashboard to view and/or print your completion certificate.

All items are considered products which include, courses, tests, eBooks, and store items.
NMLS requires very specific functionality for instructor-led online courses. This is not a Webinar. The course is-on demand and is available 24/7. It is managed and supported by a live NMLS approved instructor. Students can log in and out whenever they choose. These courses require a specified start and end date. The student must participate in a virtual community and meet the time verification and authentication requirements. Students must enter the course within the first three days that the course becomes available or must wait until the next available date. NMLS does not allow a self-paced format for pre-license 20-hour courses. All online 20-hour pre-license course formats must be managed by an instructor.


If a student fails to complete the course during the allotted time there will be a complimentary reschedule to the next available class of the student's choice. If the student fails to complete the course on the second registration, there will be a 50 percent tuition charged for the third attempt. The fourth attempt will require a full tuition charge.


All course enrollments require prepayment. Payments may be made online or through the assistance of Ameritrain Enrollment Advisors.
