Have you ever heard these words: "Come to work for us ̶ we provide training"?
Maybe you are new to the mortgage industry and feel that you need additional training.
Maybe you are in charge of recruiting and training new loan officers.
Maybe your processors, underwriters and support staff need additional training.
Or maybe you have been in the business for a while but the training consisted of “here’s your business cards, call on real estate agents, bring in a deal and we will train you as you go along.”

Oh, and it’s a fun way to learn!
