What is the best training for becoming an escrow assistant? What types of ongoing training or certifications are necessary to be an effective escrow assistant?

What do non-traditional career paths look like?

Everything that an escrow assistant has learned is definately from hands on experience. Usually escrow assistants are started off with small tasks ie ordering payoff demands, ordering preliminary title reports, ordering insurance and from there you build up the knowledge of the life of the escrow transaction.

The best way to become an escrow assistant is hands on.... So true. The skills you'll need is fast learner, able to multi-task, computer effecient, people friendy, and know how to escalate a conversation with an angry client..... The rest you will learn with hands on experience.

I'm working as an escrow assistant right now.

I moved away from just requesting titlework within 5 months. At 3 months I was recommended to be an escrow officer, because I went above and beyond. Tried to find more efficient ways for EVERYTHING. (:

I appreciate your use of industry vocab in your response. Very helpful. I have an opportunity to become an escrow assistant but I have no experience, although I have audited contracts in other industries. Could you recommend any good reading material or websites where I can learn more? Or can I contact you and pick your brain briefly?
