VRM University (VRMU), the training division of VRM Mortgage Services and provider of nationwide training, certification and continuing education for the mortgage and real estate industries, has launched the VRMU Academy.
The new training program offers courses targeted at small businesses in the mortgage and real estate industries. The courses include personnel and human resources compliance training, leadership and professional development, and operational best practices to advance small and mid-tier organizations.
The three new areas of focus include the following:
áÂ Academy training: instructional content includes compliance, customer service, human resources and technical training and can be conducted at VRMU's corporate office, online or at a company's site;
áÂ Industry training: specializes in online and instructor-led, industry-specific courses for real estate continuing education. The courses are currently approved for continuing education (CE) credits in Texas and California, with additional, nationwide CE certifications available in mid-2014;
áÂ Custom training: provides custom and highly customizable curriculums designed to help ensure that an organization's vendors and employees are trained and certified in their specific policies and procedures. VRMU can modify existing courses or build new training platforms for any client to help ensure continuity of service and compliance and provides online tracking of completion and certification dates.
"We're extremely pleased to launch the VRMU Academy and make it available to all industry professionals," says Effie Dennison, senior vice president of business development for VRMU. "This has become an increasingly dynamic industry, and companies at all levels are looking to ensure seamless continuity of operations. Small-business owners know the devil is in the details, and this new program will help ensure they know those details and more."
