Just as 2013 opened a new era in MLTA Educational offerings with the first (Title 101) Boot Camp, this fall of 2019 – specifically, Wednesday, September 11, at the H Hotel in Midland , MI, the MLTA unveils its first ESCROW BOOT CAMP – the MLTA Escrow Basics Boot Camp (or, “The Everyday Challenges of Escrow and Closings”). Unlike previous Boot Camps, more geared to the Title Side, this will focus on the trials and tribulations of preparing for and executing a closing.
It will be presented by an experienced group of escrow professionals, who will share very pragmatic experiences and suggestions, from “What’s Wrong With This Title Commitment?” to “OMG, I Need To Do WHAT Before We Close?” Disclaimer: In 5 or 6 hours, you obviously can’t possibly cover everything.

As with other Boot Camps, this is designed for title and escrow employees , who are not yet “lifers”. But, of course, everyone is welcome (until we reach capacity). So, check the MLTA website and register ASAP!

That is how the Boot Camps got started …
