Thank you for considering our
Workshop: Surface Chain of Title course.

It is the most comprehensive course of its kind available today by way of the 300+ years of our unequaled advisory board members' hands on executive experience in this field.

    The course is very similar to the Online Mineral Chain of Title course but deals with an irregular tract of land in Oklahoma.

    The student will see how documents are used from the County Clerk’s Office, County Assessor’s Office and the County Treasurer’s Office.

    The student will see how to create the chain of title from actual scanned documents and how to create the final ownership report.

    This course is a must for those contemplating entering into the Right of Way Industry.

    The course comes with the Right of Way Essentials course

Dear David,

Thank you for the truly informative course held last September. 
I have completed my first year as an in-house landman for a petroleum company and can’t imagine how I could have achieved it without your excellent tutelage.
