Registration and housing for the 2022 Land Title School opens on Tuesday, January 18, 2022. View the updated schedule of events below and make plans to attend this year.  

New to the Title Industry or Want to Learn More?

Are you a title professional looking for basic knowledge in the title industry or seeking cross-training to become a more valuable asset in the newer, leaner title industry? Perhaps you want to expand your skills and learn from industry experts. The Land Title School of Texas is the event for you!

The Land Title School of Texas is an in-depth, interactive and comprehensive title industry program condensed into just a few days, saving your company time and money. With more than 6,500 graduates, we're the gold standard in Texas title industry education!

The intense program covers industry basics and evaluates each step of a residential closing, including detailed preparation of the Closing Disclosure Form. In addition, the School features interactive testing throughout to reinforce students' learning and comprehension.

Is This Program for Me?

If you have been in the industry for a few months to five years or have recently switched positions, this program is designed for you. This three-day event will help prepare you for TLTA professional certification and earn you up to 20 hours toward applying for the certification exam. Registration opens Tuesday, January 18, 2022. Reserve your spot and ensure you are growing into the next chapter of your professional journey. The Land Title School of Texas has limited seats and usually sells out, so register fast.

Comment from September Virtual School student:

The school is excellent and provides a wonderful amount of information. I have already learned so much and also have more confidence in the information I previously knew. Thank you for all you have done to provide this class despite Covid challenges!
