Are there any schools in New York City that offer a course in title insurance?

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
