Our History

Since our inception in 2003 (then known as “The Mortgage Academy”), we have filled the growing need for mortgage education.

In 2005, we launched our online mortgage education for pre-licensing and continuing education for the entire state of Utah and by 2006, they were the first company in the nation to provide the Utah Core Course online. That same year, we expanded our real estate continuing education curriculum and became officially known as "The Praedo Institute" and also extended our course offerings nationwide!

Today, we are the leader in online real estate and mortgage education and is the prefered school by some of the largest organizations in the nation. We have held our place as one of the top schools by offering the simplest, most cost-effective educational experience anywhere. And as the industry expands, so do we, offering every resource for online education in the real estate and mortgage industries.

I felt the course fully prepared me for the test. Robert C., Happy Praedo Alumni
After 13 years of being in the industry this was the best online continuing ed I have ever done. I highly recommend this company. If you got an an answer wrong it actually showed you the correct answer. It is amazing how many courses don't show you the answers you get incorrect. Thank you Colton W., Happy Praedo Alumni
From start to finish the site was very easy to navigate through. Unlike most others the slides do not freeze. I would highly recommend Praedo. Cody P., Happy Praedo Alumni
