to take the NMLS SAFE mortgage

account Quick Guide, which provides step-by-step instructions.
2Create and pay for a test enrollment window

cannot schedule a test appointment without creating and paying for a test enrollment first. For information
on how to enroll for a test, refer to the Individual Test Enrollment Process for MLOs on the NMLS Resource

the instructions on the screen to make the appointment.
4Study for the test component
OnCourse Learning offers both NMLS-approved courses and test preparation courses, which are designed to
simulate the actual SAFE Loan Originator Test components.
