Stow, Ohio (PRWEB) June 29, 2012
The National Association of Mortgage Field Services was founded with the intent of nuturing the mortgage field service industry through a variety of mediums including the sponsorship of educational programs. The Association began its training and certification program to support this effort. Since its inception in 2010, the industry has undergone a significant amount of change. In September, NAMFS will be releasing an updated and expanded version of its training and cerification program to coincide with the 2012 NAMFS Conference & Expo. This release will increase the available certifications from two to five, covering all aspects of the mortgage field service industry.
Beginning with General Industry Basics, the program will take participants through the life of a loan and educate on the fundamental requirements to provide the service level required of field service companies, servicers and investors charged with handling these properties. The Inspections module will outline the basic types of inspections, specialty inspections and their unique requirements. Pre-Sale Preservation will cover the services required to preserve the condition and value of vacant properties while protecting them from damage, vandals and/or the elements prior to foreclosure sale. Post-Sale Preservation offers insight into the guidelines and expectations associated with properties in the REO (Real Estate Owned) re-sale market. Finally, Recurring Services provides the basic guidelines and best practices for the completion of services that are regularly repeated including winterization, yard maintenance and cleaning.
The enhanced training program will be offered to the membership for the first time at the 2012 NAMFS Conference & Expo during live training sessions. These sessions have been designed to provide an introductory course for each available certification module. After attending the sessions, participants will be able to complete the corresponding certification exams via NAMFS.org upon their return to their offices. The full online program will be made available to the general public following this event.
The Association is truly committed to the improvement of the mortgage field services industry through education. This program offers companies that utilize it the chance to outsource general education while focusing on client and company specific training. It also gives graduates and those that contract or employ their services a clear differentiation from their competitors and visibility with some of the top mortgage field service companies in the nation.
The National Association of Mortgage Field Services, Inc. (NAMFS) is the premier trade association for the mortgage field service industry. We are dedicated to working with all entities of the industry from the Government Agencies and investors that set policy to the contractors and inspectors that perform the work.
