What previous work experience relates to your work as an Examiner of Title at the LTSA?

Miguel – New Westminster Land Title Office

"My previous work in accounting helped me to improve my attention to detail – a skill that is essential in examining documents."

Kristine – Victoria Land Title Office

"I worked as a land title agent for a number of years. I thought it would be helpful knowing all the forms and the basics of what goes in to them, but there is so much more you need to know."

Geoff – New Westminster Land Title Office

"I was an agent for a law firm in the Lower Mainland before joining the LTSA. For most of my time there, I was responsible for the bulk of the electronic filing for our four offices, as well as regular visits to the New Westminster Land Title Office to file releases and the occasional subdivision plans. When I started e-filing, the software we used didn't like to talk to Adobe, so I had to recreate all the forms – good experience for being an examiner, as I checked the documents at the same time."

Nicole - Kamloops Land Title Office

"As a Surface Land Administrator for an oil and gas company, I gained experience with land-related agreements and survey plans. This will definitely be useful knowledge as our examiner trainee group enters into our second year which focused on topics such as leases, statutory right of ways and survey plans."

Sherry - New Westminster Land Title Office

"I worked as a new home sales assistant helping clients through the purchase and selection of new homes. I also worked as a financial service representative for a major bank involved in lending and mortgage sales and negotiation."

What's the best and most challenging thing about the Examiner Trainee Program?

Anthony - New Westminster Land Title Office

"The best thing about the examiner trainee program is the interesting information, yet at the same time it is also the most challenging material to remember. In addition, the people I have met here are great, and being part of the Wellness Works committee definitely livens up the office!"

Mandi – Victoria Land Title Office

"The best part of participating in the examiner trainee program is the structured, continual learning environment. The company really wants its employees to be both knowledgeable and successful at what they do.
