AXIS Lending Academy, a non-profit education program that offers free hybrid education training to people seeking a career in the mortgage industry announced the formal launch of its operations.

AXIS Lending Academy provides a comprehensive, 90-day education program in which students are taught and mentored by a team of experienced leaders for a profitable career in the mortgage industry. Mortgage lenders that reach out to AXIS Lending Academy for new talent will receive candidates who are trained in modern-day mortgage operations and who will help them achieve better diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), according to a press release.

AXIS Lending Academy will be educating individuals who are seeking new careers, whether they were in industries that were hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic or come from low-income communities. In addition to job training, students will receive education in personal financial planning to prepare them to become homeowners themselves.

“Because AXIS graduates will have no previous experience in the mortgage industry, they will bring new perspective and help us move the industry forward,” said AXIS Lending Academy co-founder and chair Paul Gigliotti, a veteran mortgage leader with more than 20 years of experience in the financial services and technology industries. “AXIS will also help mortgage lenders build workforces that reflect greater diversity—not just racial diversity, but diversity among sexual orientation, culture and religion. Having known the feeling of exclusion because of my own sexual orientation, I want to help make the mortgage industry a more inclusive place and encourage new ways of doing business.

The first class at AXIS Lending Academy begins on May 7 and is expected to graduate in August.
