Announcements & Things to Know

"I want to thank you, Jim Montrym’s National Mortgage Loan Originator School. I took your course and did exactly what Jim Montrym’s suggested and I past my exam the first time. I also want to thank Jim for making the course videos interestingly humorous at times! I loved his old school (very knowledgeable), straight to the point approach. Everything just clicked. The best investment I ever made!"

Yvette Pagan Fermin

"Jim and Andrea, I thought your class was great.  After being in the business for such a long time, I thought it would be tough to sit through but it wasn’t.  In my opinion, we should all have to be licensed regardless of who we work for.  Your tips on what to study and when and how to take the test were spot on.  I passed yesterday with a 97 and I thank you for that.  On to the state!"

Best Regards,
Debra Plourde

"Dear Andrea and Jim, I recently completed the Federal 20 hour as well as the Florida prep courses with you and I just wanted to let you know that I passed both exams with ease! I did the 20 hour as the virtual class and am happy that’s the one I decided to go with.   It was perfect being able to sit in the comfort of my own home yet get the experience of a face to face class.  The class was informative and fun and I have recommended you guys to others! Thank you for all that you do."
Linda Cavallo

"I just wanted to let you know that I have passed both the National and FL State Test as of this morning. Both the National class and the FL State cram course were spot on. Everything that you said was exactly how the test went. Thank you for assisting me in this process. I will see you next year for the continuing education class!"

Jason Coulter

"I just PTT !!! The Federal Portion. I really felt as though I “learned’ the material through the 20 hour course as opposed to “memorized” it. Thanks again for all the time you put forth over the weekend of September 11th, 12th, and 13th. The material was easy to understand, the concepts to comprehend, and all in all it was a worthwhile class."
Thanks again Jim,
Wilbur “Lavelle” Dorriety

"Jim and Andrea, I took the National exam on Tuesday 9/15 and received a 95 score.  On Friday 9/18 I took the State exam and received a 98 score. Thank you both for all of your help.  I will be sending my loan officers and processors to you in the future.  Please keep me in mind for any other courses that you offer."

Thanks again.
Clay Collins

"Jim, I am really impressed with the MLO test prep course I purchased.  I felt I was well prepared for the exam.  I took the exam yesterday and received a 90% score.  I was out of the testing center in an hour.  Thank you again for offering such a well written and comprehensive course.  I believe the video is a real contributor to my being able to learn and understand the concepts.  It helped me with retention of the study material."
