We were founded in 2003 as “The Mortgage Academy” to fill the growing need for mortgage education. In 2005, we launched online mortgage education for pre-licensing and continuing education for the state of Utah and by 2006, we 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.
Today, The Praedo Institute is the leader in online real estate and mortgage education, 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.
All of Praedo’s online real estate courses were created by the Praedo instructional team and designed to provide an extremely cost effective and convenient way to satisfy continuing education and pre-licensing requirements.
Because our courses are available online, 24/7, you can begin classes any time, anywhere, and complete them at your own pace. Once a course is complete and documentation requirements have been satisfied, certificates are available immediately.
