Education Programs


In the absence of state mandated requirements, the NYSLTA has taken up the task of providing training and education to title agency employees. Senior title professionals from underwriters and title agency principals have developed a program of Core Title Services Workshops.

The 2014 Title Workshop Program is a series of 23 topics offered in a workshop setting for groups of 10-15 attendees. The program is offered in six downstate counties over a span of 20 weeks, from March to June.
