New York is an unlicensed state. You are not required to have any type of title license, therefore, I don't know of any NY title insurance schools. You do have to take a NY Notary course and pass it in order to be a Notary Public. New York has very specific practices, so it is advisable to work directly with an experienced agency to get your "on the job" training. If you are already experienced with title insurance in another state, the basics of title insurance apply in NY. You can take online courses that are an intro to title insurance, but in reviewing most of them, they are general overviews of Title 101 and aren't going to be very useful in the every day, practical use of doing title insurance. You can always come over to NJ and take our title producer's course in order to learn rules of agency, basic title knowledge, etc. The producers's course is general and NJ specific. The best school I know of here is Kovat's Professional School of Real Estate. Kovat wrote the course book and teaches it. You can find the school info under www.bigyellow.com
Title examiners are typically employed by title insurance companies
The term title insurance means insurance that covers the loss of an interest in a property due to legal defects and that is required if the property is under mortgage. Most title insurance is lender's title insurance.
In NJ you must have a title insurance producer's license in order to effect or sell title insurance. A "resident" producer's license is for someone residing (a resident) in the state of New Jersey. A "foreign" producer's license would be someone living outside of NJ, but effecting or selling title insurance. A licensed title producer can: perform title examinations, prepare title commitments/binders, give title insurance quotes, sell title insurance products/services, perform real estate closings/settlements and issue title insurance policies. Anyone receiving title insurance commissions must be licensed, including attorneys. A non-licensed person working in a title agency may perform administrative acts only that do not involve the above, which are considered "effecting and selling" title insurance. A resident producer is licensed bi-annually and required to take Continuing Education during each licensing period.

It depends on the state. In some states, where there are no licensing requirements to be a title agent/title agency, anyone can sell and effect title insurance without any special requirements or licensing. Other states require specific title licensing (like New Jersey), and an attorney must also have a title license in order to effect and sell title insurance. Additionally, states like MA require that in order to be a title agent, you must be also be an attorney. Check with your state's licensing requirements for specific details.
No it does not. Lenders Title insurance is a whole other form of coverage
You can get title insurance quotes from by doing a search on google or other search engines for title insurance and visiting one of the websites that offer title insurance quotes. There are some companies that will give you multiple title insurance quotes from more than one company by filling out just one form, and there are other companies that offer you one quote from their company. It is a good idea to shop around for title insurance companies and this is a great way to find and compare title companies and title insurance costs.
Title insurance rates vary depending on if the transaction is a purchase or a refinance
who pays title insurance when selling a home

If title insurance is not purchased at closing, then it can be purchased later. Generally a title insurance policy can be issued within 14 days of the closing.

All of the title insurance underwriter as well as many many title agencies have websites that can direct you to a local agency in your state/county/community. Simply keyword into your web browser: title insurance search, title insurance, or title insurance companies. Many title insurance underwriters and agencies will pop up. A title search or Report on Title is a search and compilation of filed public records. A title insurance POLICY insures against acts & deeds of previous owners up until the time you take title/deed to the property.
Title insurance is a specialized type of insurance that is not generally sold by insurance agents. It is usually provided by an attorney and underwritten by a title insurance company who specializes in this type of insurance. The title insurance company relies on statements and work done by the attorney when he does the title search and he has some liability for his work. You can't just decide that you want a title insurance policy anytime. It is usually done when you purchase a piece of property. I suppose that if you wanted to pay for a new title search you may be able to buy a policy at a time other than at closing.
No. Each owner must purchase their own title insurance.
