The new academy, which targets small and mid-tier real estate and mortgage businesses, will offer courses such as personnel and human resources compliance training, leadership and professional development, and operational best practices.
More than 10,000 mortgage and real estate industry professionals have completed training in more than 20,000 courses at VRMU since 2009. Courses are taught by instructors who are practicing industrial professionals and who possess a high level of quality and expertise. The new VRMU Academy will focus on small business training and courses, adding on to VRMU's widely recognized offerings that include continuing education real estate courses and client specific training.
With the addition of VRMU Academy, VRMU now has three areas of focus – academy training, industry training, and custom training – to provide those in the mortgage and real estate industries with the training and continuing education they need to stay current and competitive.
"We’re extremely pleased to launch the VRMU Academy and make it available to all industry professionals," said 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."
