American Pacific Mortgage Corporation (APMC) has announced the development of a unique training platform for new-to-the-business loan originators called LaunchPad
, an all-inclusive, accelerated training platform that provides new-to-the-business mortgage professionals NMLS pre-license education, a working knowledge of mortgage industry basics and mentorship throughout. By helping to retool the mortgage workforce, APMC is serving the needs of the diverse, modern buyer.
Through LaunchPad, APMC has developed a strategy to partner with its branch managers to help better prepare for such changes in the industry.
“We are fully committed to enabling our mortgage branches to be able to adapt to market shifts by training new-to-the-business originators so they can serve their diverse communities of homebuyers better,” said Bill Lowman, Chief Executive Officer of APMC. “We are forward-thinking at APMC and are carving a new path for training originators that you won’t find anywhere else in the industry.”
LaunchPad is a year-long program. The first 90-days is a paid, full-time intensive training program. Thereafter, the loan originator continues with success coaching and branch mentoring to ensure positive growth. The training highlights service to others and information on how the participants can propel themselves to their maximum income potential. Classes begin every few months. Upon completion, new loan originators have the fundamentals to build a successful career in the mortgage industry in a fraction of the time.
“With LaunchPad, we are doing something no other company in the industry is doing–we're providing new-to-the-business training for recent college graduates, seasoned sales professionals, or those currently in the industry, but not yet originating,” said APMC Director of Innovations Kyle Nicholas McCray. “This type of training is a must in today's market if the mortgage industry wants to evolve with shifting market dynamics.”
