Becoming a mortgage broker not only involves a lot of paperwork, it also requires solid training. The Safe and Fair Enforcement Mortgage Licensing Act (S.A.F.E.), enacted in 2008, requires all mortgage brokers to satisfy certain training requirements before they can be issued a license. But even apart from them, its always a good idea to get some extra training to keep you ahead in your field. To get you started, here are 5 of the best mortgage broker training schools in the US.

To become a mortgage broker you must demonstrate comprehensive knowledge of state and federal mortgage regulations. You also need to attend a minimum of 24 hours of instruction at a certified institution and then another 14 hours of continuing education during the first two years of operation. TheInstitute of Real Estate Florida Careers(IFREC) has several facilities across Florida, but offers classes in numerous locations through its network of associates. In addition to offering the mandatory hours of training, IFREC also provides courses for mortgage brokers who need to leverage their business and get needed industry insights. Instruction, as well as preparatory materials, can be obtained online.

Mortgage Brokers can either attend the mandatory number of training hours or can benefit from more comprehensive education beyond the licensing requirements. Kaplan Professional Schools operate in all 50 states and their rates vary between $99 and $399 per class.

New York mortgage brokers are required to attend a minimum of 20 hours of certified training and need additional ones pertaining to New York only. TheNew York Real Estate Institute(NYREI) has more than 25 years of expertise in helping mortgage brokers get licensed and succeed in their vocation. Their best option is the flexible schedule they offer. You can start a class at any time and depending on how busy you are, you can finish at a time of your own choosing between 10 days and 4 months. All classes are taught by experienced professionals and you can take them online in the convenience of your home. NYREI tries to offer its students placement opportunities by keeping in contact with mortgage companies looking for salespeople.
