ILTA Designation Courses

The ILTA is proud to offer two designation programs for people who want to know more about the title industry.  The Illinois Tille Professional (ITP) and Illinois Escrow Professional (IEP) designations have quickly become the standard for industry knowledge for title and escrow professionals in Illinois. 

There are two separate tracts available.  Each tract includes 4 courses. Courses were developed by professionals within the industry and reviewed by title insurance experts.   Each course is taught by instructors who have extensive experience in the title industry. Each course is followed by an exam which must be passed in order to earn credit for the course. To earn a designation, the designee must have attended all four courses and passed all four exams.
