Indiana Land Title Association Partners With Community College for Industry Education

October 4, 2018

The Indiana Land Title Association (ILTA) and Ivy Tech Community College celebrated their one-year ILTA Technical Pathway Certificate at the Indiana Land Title Association convention.

The partnership has been a two-year project after ILTA member Allyson Slesinski challenged and inspired Mary Slade, chair ILTA’s 2016 and 2017 ILTA Education Committee, to create a college accredited title industry program for cross-training existing title professionals as well as opportunity in our industry for new employees.

“Ivy Tech’s technology and many locations make it convenient for students to take pathway classes close to home as well as online,” said 2018 ILTA President Jackie Mitchell. “With Ivy Tech’s Pathway classes’ online and an internship option with ILTA member companies, this project is a game changer by providing accredited education nationwide for current and prospective title industry professionals.”

Andrea Ewan, ILTA’s 2017 president, added, “Given ILTA’s statewide education mission and the title industry’s integral role with the Indiana economy, it simply makes sense for ILTA to collaborate with Ivy Tech, the state’s largest public post-secondary institution, with its statewide footprint to engage students at the high school and college level.”

Ivy Tech and ILTA’s new Accreditation Subcommittee designed a technical certificate for 13 classes in the following areas to prepare students for a wide range of professions in the title industry: accounting, business, management, customer service, ethics, insurance, marketing, real estate, settlement service, and computer and informatics technology.

“Online classes provide students the opportunity to earn the average eight-month completion of the technical certificate requirements with the ability to continue their education with other associate or degreed programs,” said Aaron Baute, Ivy Tech’s vice president of business, logistics and supply. “The internship elective also provides students and title companies the ability to further explore options with the various career opportunities in the title industry.”
