Great post! I, too, was signed up with a basic profile then decided earlier this week to go ahead with the training and certification because of the price. Like you, I do not know if there will be any signings coming this way but I am giving it a try. I will see what happens during this year and decide if I will continue with them or not.

The training was indeed long. It was about 8 hours and went over very basic items, such as, printers, cell phones, e-mail. I was bored with those videos. Then the documents training came along and perked me up.

There were a couple of questions I missed so I received a 96% the first and only go around.

I did notice there were not many companies listed in their Web site to which you can provide ratings and I also noticed a good portion of agents were from east coast, based on the comments.

Hopefully, I will get calls, but since my initial registration last year, I have yet to see one assignment. Have you had any assignments since your posting?

I know this thread is older but I just experienced this today and felt it should be shared.

I signed up with this company quite a few months ago but never went any further other than signup and quick profile.

In marketing today, not sure what led me to it but I went to website, completed my profile and decided okay, what the heck - upgraded my membership to add zip codes and decided to do the certification.

People, let me tell you. If you have need of a good training program, it's my humble opinion this is a fabulous course - I've been doing real estate closings for over 30 years and this really put me through my paces. I highly recommend this program. It covers absolutely everything you need to know about loan signings, and then some, complete with sample documents. There is a 136 question exam at the end and you must score 85% to pass. I'll warn you the online training is long - I only watched half the training (my satellite internet took a hit on the online viewing) and that took me almost 4 hours - took the exam anyway and scored 84%...AARRGGHH - took it a second time and scored 91%.

I will say there are several things I do not agree with and I did find some errors in their printed material and in their test. I also feel in some areas it goes way above and beyond anything a signing agent will get involved with - but it makes you aware of these little things and situations. However, for all you new people out there wondering about where to get good, comprehensive loan signing training, I have to say this is a good one, and you can't beat the price. The basic training is $20, $25 for the certification training and exam and $10 to retake the exam. NOTE: Word of warning - you MUST be disciplined enough to self-study. This is an online tutorial and exam - you're on your own.

Don't know if I'm going to get any calls from it, but I had a good lesson today in how much I don't know - even after 30 years of doing this I learned a LOT. And it was a good refresher course on some things I'd forgotten since I don't deal with them very often.

Do yourselves a favor - go for it.

Good Luck.

Love it!(Ha ha) In the course they offer, they tell you how you, a lowly, uneducated, or under educated notary, a 'non-professional', can make 30-45 an hr after subtracting "a few dollars for gas and paper". GEE! Now either they know better and are playing stupid because they don't want to pay and hope to attract people with NO business background who don't know any better. Or are they just plain stupid. I would bet on the former though- that they are just playing stupid. They offer some good suggestions here and there though.
